Ferozkoh Tradition and Continuity in Afghan Art - English version
"Ferozkoh represents a partnership between the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) and the students and teachers of the Turquoise Mountain Institute for Afghan Arts and Architecture in Kabul. The unifying theme of the exhibition is the preservation of the traditional arts of the Islamic world - in both themes and materials - in the modern world, and the role of education in its transmission and translation. Half of the objects featured in the exhibition are historical objects from the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) collection, from four great dynasties with connections to Afghanistan: the Ghaznavids, Timurids, Mughals and Safavids. The other half of the exhibition presents works created specifically for the exhibition by Turquoise Mountain students in response to, and in conversation with, the historical objects."
