Linda Komaroff Speaking at 2017 Islamic Art Symposium

Linda Komaroff will be one of many speakers at the 7th Biennial Hamad bin Khalifa Symposium on Islamic Art on Nov. 2-4 in Richmond, Virginia.

Linda Komaroff has served as LACMA’s curator of Islamic art since 1995. She is the author or editor of several books and exhibition catalogues, and has written numerous articles and book chapters on various aspects of Islamic art. She was closely involved with LACMA’s acquisition of the Madina Collection of Islamic Art in 2002, which in combination with the museum’s already existing collection of Islamic art, gives Los Angeles one of the most significant collections worldwide; in 2006 she began to acquire and exhibit contemporary art of the Middle East, placing LACMA’s collection at the forefront of American museums.
