12 February – 15 May 2016

Featuring more than 100 outstanding works of art from the Newark Museum's extraordinary collections, Wondrous Worlds: Art & Islam Through Time & Place will showcase the long history, vast geographic expanse and amazing diversity of works of art in the Islamic world.

Two factors distinguish this exhibition: first, the inclusion of works from Southeast Asia and East and West Africa, areas largely overlooked in most exhibitions of Islamic art; and second, modern and contemporary works are featured side-by-side with historic objects.

Works in the exhibition cover nearly all media, ranging from carpets to dress to jewelry, ceramics, glass, metal, paintings, prints, calligraphy and photographs. This exhibition will surprise viewers with dazzling works that span over 1,400 years of artistry.
