The Written Word: Timeless Arabic & Hebrew Calligraphy coming to the Woolf Institute
The work of three calligraphy artists, Joumana Medlej, Michel D’Anastasio and Maaida Noor, has been curated in a new exhibition.
The three artists will attend the opening day of the exhibition this Sunday (June 12) and, after the opening, the original art pieces will be on display on demand until June 26.
Calligraphy as a form of ornamental handwriting is found in cultures and languages throughout the world, with origins dating back to ancient times in East Asian, Roman, Persian, Islamic, Chinese and Western cultures.
The work and training of these contemporary artists is informed by their diverse heritage, and together the calligraphy represents the three Abrahamic traditions.
Appointments can be made at email@example.com. The reproduced prints can be viewed when the Woolf Institute building is open (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm).
The exhibition runs until December. To register for the opening day, go to bit.ly/3LQ0S5k.
