Massumeh Farhad 

When: Thu., Oct. 24 2013
What does Islamic art bring to your mind's eye? Tessellated mosaic patterns, geometric screens, curved archways? The Nasher's current exhibition Doris Duke's Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art offers all that, but seen through the eyes of a single collector. In the Nasher's annual Semans Lecture, Massumeh Farhad, chief curator and curator of Islamic art at the Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution, talks about Doris Duke's sensibility selecting textiles and ceramics, as well as furniture and architectural elements at her spectacular estate in Hawaii. —Chris Vitiello
