Examples

  • Rather than presenting Islamic art as the product of a religiously driven monoculture encompassing centuries and continents, the Met is now - far more realistically - approaching it as a varied, changing, largely secular phenomenon, regionally rooted but absorptively cosmopolitan, affected by the intricacies and confusions of history, including the history that the art itself helped to create.
