Remnants of a lost civilization
ART | The World of the Fatimids March 10 to July 2, Aga Khan Museum
At the height of its reign in the 10th and 11th centuries, Egypt’s Fatimid dynasty ruled over an empire that stretched from Cairo to Sicily to Iran, fostering a diverse society steeped in the arts and sciences. This spring, the Aga Khan Museum hosts North America’s first comprehensive exhibition of Fatimid artifacts, including marble reliefs, ceramic lustreware and other objets d’art. The show also includes VR experiences that immerse audiences in the extraordinary but underexplored society.
