The Jameel Prize 2011
21 July - 25 September 2011
The Jameel Prize is the V&A's £25,000 international art prize awarded to a contemporary artist or designer inspired by traditions of Islamic craft and design. This year, ten artists and designers have been shortlisted and the exhibition will display works ranging from felt costumes to sculpture made from hand-made terracotta bricks, and from mirror mosaic to digital collages inspired by traditional Persian miniature paintings. The winner will be announced on 12 September.
In partnership with Abdul Latif Jameel Community Initiatives (ALJCI).
Complementing our permanent collections, there are many free temporary displays around the V&A. They range in size from a single case to a room.
