Imran qureshi

Haidar, Navina Najat, interviewer; Wagstaff, Sheena, contributor; Alteveer, Ian, interviewer; Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, N.Y.), host institution

Named the Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year for 2013, Imran Qureshi combines traditional motifs and techniques of Islamic art with contemporary reflections on the relationship between Islam and the West. His investigations into ornamentation reference both the miniature painting of the Mughal tradition, in which he was trained, and large, site-specific installations in architectural space, which address both the building itself and its historical and political meanings
