Implementation of a traveling exhibition, a symposium, a catalog, and public programs about Islamic art from the eighth to the 19th century in the context of gift-giving at Islamic courts.

Museum Associates dba the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is requesting a $400,000 implementation grant to support "Gifts of the Sultan: The Arts of Giving at the Islamic Courts," a pan-Islamic exhibition of approximately 220 works that spans the eighth through nineteenth centuries. Expected to be a transformative exhibition, one that coincides with a new American initiative in international relations emphasizing our shared humanity rather than our singular histories, this exhibition will introduce an American audience to Islamic art and culture with objects of undisputed quality and appeal, viewed through the universal lens of gift-giving. It will be accompanied by an extensive array of didactic materials and a full complement of interpretive humanities and educational programs, along with a fully illustrated 350-page catalogue with scholarly essays by curators and academics representing a range of interdisciplinary perspectives.
