Discover the mesmeric calligraphy-based art of Lulwah Al Homoud at this exhibition which celebrates calligraphy as one of the most powerful art forms for highlighting the brilliance of the written word and putting forth powerful ideas that are related to Islamic heritage, as well as the region’s cultural and social identity.
DIACE aims to shed light on the use of calligraphy in contemporary design and frame the art form in a modern context to enhance its appeal for today’s Islamic and Arab communities and artists. This ensures that calligraphy reaches the largest possible audience across various international cultures, while remaining true to its classical origins. The exhibition also includes workshops for all ages, where visitors and calligraphy enthusiasts can learn, first-hand, about different calligraphy styles and techniques.
