Profile

Islamic art expert and curator Sabiha Al Khemir Fundación and the Foundation Focus-Abengoa in Seville, Spain have put together a rare, highly-inclusive collection of work spanning eleven centuries, drawing from both public and private collections to demonstrate the symbolic significance and cultural importance of light in the Islamic world. As demonstrated by the expansive nature of the exhibit, light has two meanings. There is the physical—the sun, the giver of life—and the metaphysical, light as knowledge in the darkness of ignorance. There's only one place in the United States where you can see this exhibit, and it's here.
