During a visit to the "told ,untold , retold" exhibition at the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha I chanced upon an installation by Mounir Fatmi.
His images of a city skyline are projected on a wall. The buildings are outlined against a dark background. The buildings are Kufi squares!
The exhibition runs from 30 Dec 2010 until 28 May 2011 at the exhibition hall , museum of islamic art grounds in Doha, Qatar.
Photography is not allowed in the exhibition and I have copied these images from the artist website.
