From Mecca to Sufi Shrines: Islamic Poster Art from South Asia

Opening Reception: Wednesday, March 13, 5–7pm
Free but RSVP required

Curated by Yousuf Saeed, an independent filmmaker and researcher based in India, this exhibition showcases the ephemeral objects and devotional art produced for consumption by the masses in the Islamic world, in particular in South Asia. Included are mass-printed Islamic posters and calendar art from India and Pakistan, which often depict images of the Hajj pilgrimage, South Asian Su  shrines and saints, and calligraphy and talismans linked to other religious faiths found in the region.
