Open to the Public

News channels broadcast chaotic scenes from Cairo, Damascus, and Kabul to millions of people, increasing awareness of Islamic sites and cultures in North Africa, Central Asia, and the Middle East while simultaneously contributing to erroneous public assumptions about a monolithic Islam hostile to art. Islamic art historian and museum curator Leslee Michelsen discusses the changing role that contemporary museums play in curating and interpreting Islamic art amidst the socio-political realities of the 21st century.
