Tracing the currents of change that unite the visual and material culture of the Islamic world across space and time The seas have long served as both connective tissue for and barriers between intellectual, social, and artistic traditions. Nowhere is this dual role more evident than within the visual and material cultures of the Islamic world. This remarkable new book brings together an international group of scholars and curators whose contributions address seafaring mobility’s profound effect on Islamic art. Their case studies range across the globe and span a period from Islam’s 1st century to today. Contributors examine the roles of importation and migration, travel, diplomacy, and gift giving in driving artistic innovation and changing the social, political, and religious institutions of an increasingly diverse Islamic world. Taken together, these chapters embody a distinctive big-picture approach, pulling an exceptional diversity of voices and topics into productive dialogue. Radha Dalal is assistant professor and Jochen Sokoly is associate professor of Islamic art and architecture in the Department of Art History at Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of the Arts, Qatar. Sean Roberts is lecturer in the School of Art at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. See Chapter 15, The Sea is The Limit We Need to Talk About Migration by Varvara Shavrova (p.272-293)

We imagine that art and money are old enemies, but this myth actually reproduces a violent system of global capitalism and prevents us from imagining and building alternatives. Stockwell's installation, Sail Away is discussed in the last chapter of the book.
This exhibition catalogue dedicates itself to the qualities of maps as surfaces for projecting the world. The exhibition puts maps from various epochs in relation to artworks by international artists that examine the cartographic depiction of space or the influence of maps on our view of the world. Starting from the characteristics of maps, the publication is structured in three closely interlinked areas: 'Knowledge', 'Imagination', and 'Power'.
