Ibraaz: Forum on Visual Culture in N. Africa and the Middle East

Ibraaz is the leading critical forum on visual culture in North Africa and the Middle East. Initiated by the Kamel Lazaar Foundation, it was launched at the 54th Venice Biennale.

Ibraaz now publishes edited readers in print and runs public programmes at institutions across the globe. Ibraaz has an editorial policy that addresses the formal and conceptual issues underwriting art as a practice and how artists work. In addition, Ibraaz aims to explore how such practices address and reflect upon the complexities of contemporary life and art practices across North Africa and the Middle East.

Arab painting : text and image in illustrated Arabic manuscripts.

Lilly Library ND2955 .A73 2010 Check availability @ Duke
Arab painting, preserved mainly in manuscript illustrations of the 12th to 14th centuries, is here treated as an artistic corpus fully deserving of appreciation in its own terms, and not as a mere precursor to Persian painting. The book assembles papers by a distinguished list of scholars that illuminate the variety of material that survives in scientific as well as literary manuscripts. Because of the contexts in which the paintings appear, a major theoretical concern is, precisely, the relationship of painting to text. It rejects earlier scholarly habits of analysing paintings in isolation, and proposes the integration of text and image as a more satisfactory framework within which to elucidate the characteristics and functions of this impressive body of work. This second, revised edition includes addenda and corrigenda.

"Although the politics of Arab identity are complicated and problematized by all sorts of historical issues, this study analyzes the "representation" of this identity in terms of art and aesthetics. Geographically, the focus is on Arabic-speaking countries of the Middle East and North Africa. Since Arab identities are continuously contested and negotiated in relation to diaspora and transmigration, this study includes a few examples that have influenced the development of art in the Arab world. The present study consists of three parts that deal with the formation and development of distinct modern Arab aesthetics, particularly in contrast to the Islamic." (From the introduction)
