Curated London

This bijou exhibition at the V&A presents some of the world’s best Islamic-inspired art and design. The display includes dresses, carpets, film and textiles, alongside more traditional media. Typography features prominently in this, the third year of the competition, as modern Arabic typeface design catches up with its Roman counterpart. Standout entries include Nada Debs’ mammoth Concrete Carpet, inlaid with mother-of-pearl, and Rahul Jain’s shimmering fabrics. You don’t need any knowledge of Islamic art, or a connection to the faith, to thoroughly enjoy this beautifully-curated collection of contemporary art.
