East Meets West

Slate Magazine as usual has some very convincing essay/slideshows. This one I found particularly interesting and I wish I was in New York to go see it.

Its about an exhibition currently being held at MoMA showcasing 'Muslim artists who come from the Islamic world but do not live there'. It has the intention of challenging the perception of Islam/Islamic art by breaking away geographical boundaries it seems.

The points made in the slide seem just and I would agree only to a certain extent simply because it is the only material I have about the show having never seen it myself. Let me know what you think while I sit here on the fence. xxw
