Join Sheila Canby, newly appointed Curator of Islamic Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the responsibility of overseeing the department’s new suite of galleries, as she describes the process of installing, interpreting, and displaying their vast collection. Explore the diversity of objects dating from the 7th to the 20th centuries that reflect the arts of the Arab lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, India, and south Asia—all to be part of the renovated and expanded galleries.

This event is exclusively for members of Friends of Asian Art.
