As part of our MIA Islamic Art Collectors Forum, this is a chance for young collectors to show what they collect and why they think collecting is important, meet with other Collectors, Curators and Conservators. The session will be held in the MIA Library at 4pm in Arabic and English. All are welcome.
2 December - 4:00 pm
The MIA Islamic Art Collectors Forum provides a venue for private collectors to come together, explore ideas and learn more about conservation, research, display of objects, collections management, and ethical issues relating to collecting - and for collectors to have a chance to share thoughts and talk about issues related to collecting. The Islamic Art Collectors Forum will run a special series of events in celebration of MIA’s 4th Floor exhibition Powder and Damask: Islamic Arms and Armour from the Collection of Fadel Al Mansoori which showcases both powder and edged weapons from the Ottoman, Mughal and Safavid empires in the 17th to late 19th century where the art of craftsmanship reached unprecedented levels.
