Buro 24/7 Middle East takes an exclusive look at what to expect from the highly anticipated Islamopolitan exhibition opening tonight in Sharjah

Curated by celebrated regional design expert Khalid Shafar, 'Islamopolitan' is an exhibition that highlights the 'universal topic and dialogue between Islam and design', not only from a decorative angle, but from a holistic perspective.

The exhibition will feature works by emerging and established UAE based, regional and international designers, whose practices are inspired by Islam as a design subject, rather than religious designation. 

Buro 24/7 Middle East takes an exclusive look at what to expect from the show at Sharjah's Maraya Art Centre:

Themes for the show pertaining to worship, architecture, and behaviours are explored both curatorially and artistically, making special focus on practice, construction and etiquette... starting tonight for it's opening event, running through to August 23.
