Fact > Museum Of Islamic Art Opens In Doha, Qatar

November 26, 2008


There’s not much that I can say that the feature article over at New York Magazine can’t say for me but such a development is long overdue.. and my view isn’t driven by my family roots in Islam, I personally am not driven by religion 😉 the world is exposed to an overwhelming amount of Western, Asian art and it’s due time that art from this part of the world is opened up to the masses.

Jerusalem and the Arab world have more ‘aesthetic and cultural similarities’ than differences” – I liked that comment made by an attendee, it’s more true than most people stop to think about.
