LAST CHANCE Evolution of Arabic Calligraphy
15 October 2019Free
Exhibitions at the Sharjah Calligraphy Museum are almost always interesting both on the decorative front as well as in terms of scholarship. This one focuses on the six main Arabic styles of writing (Al Kufi, Al Thuluth, Al Naskh, Al Ta’liq, Al Diwani and Al Maghribi) with over 40 works (by women as well as men) that illustrate how Arabic calligraphy moved from being purely a tool of communication into an explicit art form.
