Collecting Calligraphy: Arts of the Islamic World 

September 7, 2018–January 27, 2019

Press Release

The Cincinnati Art Museum has been collecting Islamic calligraphy since the 1940s. These sumptuous works, with precisely articulated scripts that grace the page, explore the prominence and pervasiveness of calligraphy in the arts of the Islamic world.

Richly illuminated folios from poetic and historic manuscripts will be displayed alongside pages from the Qur’an, calligraphic practice sheets, and political decrees in Collecting Calligraphy: Arts of the Islamic World. Through the display of individual folios and complete manuscripts that date from the ninth through the twentieth century, the exhibition emphasizes the craftsmanship and skill evident in each work’s creation. One can appreciate the symbiotic balance between paper size, script, ornamentation, and illumination in works that originate from a myriad of countries; including Iran, Turkey, India, Spain, and Syria. Discovering Islamic calligraphy through this collection reveals how the art of the book functioned as a vehicle to convey knowledge, disseminate the word of God, and legitimize empire. 

Collecting Calligraphy celebrates a recent gift from JoLynn and Byron Gustin, Cincinnati residents and active museum patrons. This significant gift adds to our strengths in the calligraphic arts, an artform long prized by Islamic cultures and which has flourished from the seventh century through the present.

The temporary exhibition will be on view in The Manuel D. and Rhoda Mayerson Gallery and Sara M. and Michelle Vance Waddell Gallery (G124 and 125), across from the museum’s Terrace Café. Free admission. Photography is permitted.

Kwanzaa: Celebrating Family, Community and Culture

Kwanzaa: Celebrating Family, Community and Culture

  • The Hive: A Center for Contemplation, Art and Action (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Register for Tickets $5-$15.

Join Cincinnati neighbors from diverse backgrounds to celebrate Kwanzaa with food, song, and contemplative practices. Kwanzaa is an African American and Pan-African holiday that celebrates family, community and culture. It was created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, Professor of Africana Studies. As a ritual, Kwanzaa is based on African harvest celebrations and it’s conceived as a seven-day cultural festival structured around seven core communitarian values called the Nguzo Saba. Each day of Kwanzaa is centered around one of the communitarian values which are Umoja (Unity); Kujichagulia (Self-Determination); Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility); Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics); Nia (Purpose); Kuumba (Creativity); and Imani (Faith). Kwanzaa begins December 26 and ends January 1, with a ritual feast called a Karamu.

The Hive is not a faith community or a community of one ethnic experience, neither are the hosts for this gathering from the same experience. We are an ad hoc group. This experiential workshop will introduce participants to the fundamental tenets of Kwanzaa. You will learn its origins, fundamental activities, essential values, symbols, and greetings. Family members are encouraged to attend together.

This group led event will be curated by Adam Clark. Adam is an Associate Professor of Theology at Xavier University, is committed to the idea that theological education in the twenty first century must function as a counter-story. One that equips students to read against the grain of the dominant culture and inspires them to live into the Ignatian dictum of going forth “to set the world on fire.” He currently serves as co-chair of Black Theology Group at the American Academy of Religion, actively publishes in the area of black theology and black religion and participates in social justice groups at Xavier and in the Cincinnati area.

He is the founder and chief executive officer of Define American, the nation’s leading nonprofit media organization that fights injustice and anti-immigrant hate through the power of storytelling. He is the author of the forthcoming memoir, Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen, to be released by HarperCollins on September 18, 2018.

In 2011, the New York Times Magazine published a groundbreaking essay he wrote in which he revealed and chronicled his life in America as an undocumented immigrant. A year later, he appeared on the cover of TIME magazine worldwide with fellow undocumented immigrants in a follow-up cover story. He then produced and directed Documented, a documentary feature film on his undocumented experience. Broadcasted on CNN and streamed on Netflix, the film received a 2015 NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Documentary. In 2015, MTV aired White People, an Emmy-nominated television special he produced and directed on what in means to be young and white in a demographically changing America.

This film series seeks to illuminate the fight for civil and human rights as the life and history of Mandela embodies.

Colonialism and Imperialism: Ubuntu and the Struggle Against White Supremacy in South Africa

Saturday, November 10, 2018, at 3:30 p.m.
National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
50 E Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH 45202

This program is free with general admission.

In the 17th century, South Africa was colonized by the Dutch Empire and, later by the British. The history of European involvement in the region mirrors that of the Americas. As with the Caribbean and mainland North and South America, European settlers in Africa were interested in exploiting the both continent’s people and natural resources. People of European descent in South Africa accumulated wealth due to the markets of enslaved workers which developed along the coast and due to the region’s gold and diamond mines. Settlers justified the absolute pursuit of wealth with the doctrine of white supremacy. They managed to convince themselves – in direct opposition to the concept of Ubuntu – that brutalizing people of African descent was the natural order of things.  

Join us for a discussion about white supremacy and the philosophy of Ubuntu.

With special guest BASKOTY DJONZE 

"Basko" is a choreographed dancer from Gabon who started dancing on the streets of Libreville in 2007. He is one of the most successful dancers in the battle circuit in Central Africa. Parallel to his rise in the world of the competition, the dancer crossed the gates of the institute Francais du Gabon in 2013 where he is still in residence now. This partnership brings Basko to choreographic creation where there is a real desire to share, but also to tell their visions of life to the public. In 2015 they created a Street Dance called Zyeute Dance, a very popular dance in Gabon and one of the most popular dances in Africa, and he continues to travel around the world to exchange, share and meet various professional dancers.
