With Dr Francesca Leoni, curator of Islamic Art at the Ashmolean
Dr Francesca Leoni, the curator of our current Dia al-Azzawi: Painting Poetry exhibition, introduces us to Dia al-Azzawi, the highly-influential, contemporary Iraqi artist.
She will explore the main themes of the exhibition and the significance of poetry and 'dafatir' in the artist's creative practice, including how it impacted the development of the specific art genre on view in the exhibition.
This past event has now taken place.
