Golnaz Fathi's work is on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in The Decorated Word: Writing and Picturing in Islamic Calligraphy. The show examines the interplay between writing and picturing in Islamic calligraphy and explores the inherent tension between textual design, decoration, readability, and verbal clarity in some four dozen examples of Islamic calligraphy from The Met's collection, including Fathi's untitled 2013 work, acquired by the Museum in 2014.


The show, located in Gallery 458 on the second floor, will be on view through November 3.
