Islamic Art

Islamic Art

Muslim Artists explore issues surrounding faith, culture, identity and politics to tell stories through diverse mediums.

Islamic Art encompasses the visual arts produced by those living within Islamic civilisations and Muslim populated lands dating from the 7th century CE onwards. Difficult to define due to the many regions and peoples it covers, Islamic Art is neither an art form, nor is it defined by place or time. Over the centuries, Islamic Art has reflected cultural and social environments, embracing both the secular and religious elements of the civilisation of its time.

From exquisite mosaic artworks, to surfboards with artwork adorned with Islam inspired designs, the Islamic Art Gallery boasts a space that is tranquil and serene. Many of the objects on display are the work of contemporary Australian artists who explore themes of identity, faith and culture through their craft.
