22 March-10 June.
Arabic calligraphy has a special spiritual significance, both because it is used for writing the Koran, the Islamic sacred scriptures, and for its intrinsic decorative value that plays an important role in Islamic art. This exhibition, under the patronage of Queen Rania Al Abdullah, features works by 76 artists considered the most representative of the Arab world. The works are from the permanent collection of calligraphic works of the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, and include paintings, installations, graphic works and art books.
