Jameel Prize 4 exhibition in Istanbul was organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London in partnership with Art Jameel, and in collaboration with the Pera Museum.
Over 280 nominations for the Jameel Prize 4 were received from countries as far ranging as Afghanistan, Mali, Puerto Rico and Thailand. A panel of judges, chaired by V&A Director, Martin Roth, selected the shortlist. Works on show ranged from delicate paper collages to an animated video installation with marionettes and from ceramics, calligraphy and sculpture to artist’s books.
The eleven shortlisted artists and designers were David Chalmers Alesworth, Rasheed Araeen, Lara Assouad, CANAN, Cevdet Erek, Sahand Hesamiyan, Lucia Koch, Ghulam Mohammad, Shahpour Pouyan, Wael Shawky, and Bahia Shehab. This catalog, published for the Jameel Prize 4, provides information on the background of this international award for contemporary art and design. It also offers different perspectives on the relationship between contemporary art and Islamic tradition.
