The Aga Khan’s Diamond Jubilee in Lisbon: Glimpses from the magnificent International Arts Gallery
By ABDULMALIK MERCHANT
In my earlier post today, I recommended that young and old alike must visit the “Sentiment Wall” at the International Arts Festival. It is an outdoor exhibit consisting of three thematic walls located about 150 metres from the International Arts Gallery. After spending about an hour the Sentiment Wall yesterday evening, I attended the International Arts Gallery. It is impressive enough to merit its own catalogue. I present here a glimpse from the remarkable exhibition showcasing outstanding Ismaili talent from around the world.

This website, Barakah, is a special project by http://www.Simerg.com and is dedicated to the textual and visual celebration of His Highness the Aga Khan as he celebrates his Diamond Jubilee or 60 years of Imamat.
The photograph representing GOD’S CREATION by Nadya Shakoor, USA. needs to be re-oriented. Currently, it shows the work upside down. Thank you for your brief write up on the International Art Gallery. If you wish to know more please do contact me. Best wishes, Zainub Verjee, Director, International Art Gallery, Jubilee Arts, Lisbon 2018
I regret the error – the image was stored and loaded incorrectly after re-sizing. Readers wish to know whether there is a PDF file listing all the art works that were displayed at the Gallery.
Mind blowing! Amazing work of art! Congratulations!
