Renowned cultural historian Dr. Assadullah Souren Melikian-Chirvani curated the exhibition
A landmark exhibition exploring the World of the Fatimids opened Saturday at the Aga Khan Museum.
Curated by renowned cultural historian Dr. Assadullah Souren Melikian-Chirvani, the exhibition is North America’s first to feature a carefully selected collection of masterpieces from the Fatimid dynasty.
Among the objects are monumental marble reliefs from the Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo, luxury objects ranging from rock crystal and ivory to ceramic lusterware — a technique mastered during Fatimid times — and early metal masterpieces.
