Rachid Koraichi, recipient of the 2011 Jameel Prize, will be giving a talk titled “Eternity Is the Absence of Time” at Stanford's Cantor Museum/Arts Center on Thursday January 24 at 5:30 pm. The talk will take place against the backdrop of his award-winning work The Invisible Masters where Koraichi will discuss The Path of Roses, a series of installations that develop over time and in different locations.

The Jameel Prize is the Victoria and Albert Museum's international art prize awarded to a contemporary artist or designer inspired by traditions of Islamic craft and design. Ten artists and designers were shortlisted.

Koraichi's artwork is currently on display at Stanford's Cantor Museum as part of an exhibition [The Jameel Prize: Art Inspired by Islamic Tradition] displaying works ranging from felt costumes to sculpture made from hand-made terracotta bricks, and from mirror mosaic to digital collages inspired by traditional Persian miniature paintings. The exhibition is free and open to the public through March 10, 2013 and is open Wed-Sun 11am - 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; CLOSED MONDAY AND TUESDAY. For more info see http://events.stanford.edu/events/334/33435. The event is supported by the Victoria and Albert Museum London (V&A) in partnership with the Abdul Latif Jameel Community Initiatives and is made available at Stanford thanks to the support of Cantor Arts Center Members and the Sohaib and Sara Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies at Stanford University.

In addition to Koraichi's talk on January 24, there are other campus events taking place that have to do with this event. On Thursday, February 7, beginning at 5:30 pm, a panel of experts will engage in scholarly debate about contemporary Islamic art. “Axis of Light,” a 60-minute documentary film about eight artists from the Middle East, including Rachid Koraïchi, will be shown; event details to be announced. The programs are open to the public with free admission.
