Curating & Creating A Practical Approach to Contemporary Islamic Design Pedagogy and Practice

My research investigates the possibility of alternative approaches for Islamic design by offering an aesthetic reading to Islamic traditional philosophy that corresponds to contemporary practice. My methodological approach emphasises the notion of art-making as “thinking made visible”, by adopting multi-faceted artistic practice and processes including aspects such as “studio thinking”, “visual thinking”, and “tacit knowledge”. Research methodology adopts curatorial practice as a mode of assemblage and an enactment of thinking/creating. My research also demonstrates a new understanding of curatorial practice as a disruptive form of knowledge that challenge and inform the practice and pedagogy of Islamic artistic expression.
