Feasting in Islamic Art

Dr Tara Desjardins

Sunday 27 May, 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
MIA is delighted to welcome our new curator, Dr Tara Desjardin, to the Ramadan lecture series and to give her first lecture here at MIA. Feasting involves food and company, yet the act itself has historically held various associations related to ceremony, ritual, power, prestige, and pleasure. This talk will discuss how feasting is depicted in Islamic paintings from the 15th-19th century, looking specifically at the role objects play in illustrating different meanings.
