Islamic Art In The Museum


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The purpose of this study is to examine the representation of Islamic art in museums in the last decade, compared to its representation before the events of 9/11. In order to give an overview of various exhibition designs throughout the world, three renowned museums are surveyed: the Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Between 2003 and 2010-2011, the Museum of Islamic Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art renewed their galleries dedicated to Islamic art, while the Musée du Louvre created an entirely new department dedicated to Islamic Arts set to open in 2012. The author argues that these institutions' presentations of Islamic art are both modernized and Westernized. In a way, museums are exhibiting Islamic art without acknowledging Muslims or the religion of Islam; unconsciously a certain Orientalism (a term used by Edward Said), or neo-Orientalism, is taking place within these institutions. The data is gathered from visits to the galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as at the Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo. Although the galleries at the Musée du Louvre have yet to be inaugurated, the author was able to collect information through an internship with the museum. Moreover, qualitative interviews were made at the Louvre, as well as with the designer who renovated the Cairene museum and with Islamic art experts in Cairo. Various museum publications were analyzed, ranging from catalogues issued in 1907 to the most recent publications in 2011. In conclusion, there is indeed an explicit will to represent Islam away from the stereotypes that have risen in the past decade. Although the intent is sincere, Islamic art remains undefined, a complex and adverse issue, which might actually result in the hardening of these stereotypes.
