The Islamic Art Presentations held at the Dallas Museum of Art have great potential to educate a large audience about the diversity of Islamic cultures and Islamic Art not only as it is presented today, but also borrowing from its rich artistic and cultural heritage. This conference highlights how living Muslim and non Muslim artists continue to use their creativity to address the communal, national, and individual experiences as they relate to the Islamic art & culture, and build bridges across different faith and communities. IARS hopes to impart knowledge and understanding not only about the Islamic cultures from around the world but also to dispel stereotypes and misconceptions about Muslims living in the United States. IARS will introduce four international artists and educators including Kurt Hofstetter, Contemporary Artist, Innovator and Scientist from Vienna, Austria; Barbara Doser, Independent Film Maker from Vienna, Austria; Azra Aksamija, Contemporary Artist, Architect and Associate Professor at MIT; and Bahman Panahi, Master Calligrapher, Artist, Educator and Musician from Paris, France. These experts will be presenting lectures, short film and workshops to educated and inform the audience in attendance.
