The intersection of Islamic tradition and Western modernity in the residence of an American philanthropist is the focus of Doris Duke’s Shangri La, the much anticipated exhibit now open through February 17, 2013 at the Museum of Art and Design in New York.
Duke’s most prized possessions, collected over a 60 year-span from Spain, North Africa, Central, South Asia, and the Middle East and housed in her Honolulu residence are on display with interior photography of the estate by well-known photographer Tim Street-Porter
Scenes from Shangri La:
Amazingly enough, although The Museum of Art & Design is only a few blocks away, I have yet to visit it . I think this exhibit will be a most perfect first encounter.
