Recent Grad Curates Islamic Art Exhibition at CSU

Photographer and mixed media artist Nama Khalil, a 2009 Cleveland Institute of Art graduate, has curated an exhibition featured in the main gallery at Cleveland State University. Another Way of Looking: Influences from Islam features contemporary art influenced by Islam and includes work by Azra Aksamija, Salma Arastu, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Nama Khalil, Asma Shikoh, Susanne Slavick, and Huda Totonji.

“Islam is the fastest growing religion and yet it is misunderstood and misrepresented,” said Khalil. “As they take another look at Islam, the artists of Another Way of Looking offer us a way out of the violence and mayhem that seems to always be taking place in the Middle East.”

Alongside Another Way of Looking, CSU’s Gallery C is exhibiting two other shows that work with the contemporary part: Islamic Manuscripts from the Cleveland Public Library Collection, curated by Marian Bleeke, and Touching the History: Photographs from the Dome of Hagia Sophia, curated by Dr. Cemal Ekin.

The show, which opened with a gallery talk and reception on May 21, will be on display until June 26.
