SPIRIT and MATTER opens at the DMA
Spirit and Matter: Masterpieces from the Keir Collection of Islamic Art
September 18, 2015 to July 31, 2016 | Focus I Gallery
Spirit and Matter: Masterpieces from the Keir Collection of Islamic Art is the first exhibition at the DMA of art from the rarely shown and internationally renowned Keir Collection of Islamic Art. The exhibition presents a selection of over fifty masterworks in various mediums—from rock crystal to works on paper, metalwork, ceramics, carpets, and textiles—and explores thirteen centuries of Islamic art making across three continents, from Spain to Central Asia. These magnificent objects highlight the aesthetic and cultural resonances imbued in these masterpieces by the people who made them. Organized and developed by the DMA’s Senior Advisor for Islamic Art Dr. Sabiha Al Khemir, Spirit and Matter marks the first time these works will be on view in North America.
