Jameel Prize 5 at the Victoria & Albert Museum

David G.Taylor explores the Islamic-inspired contemporary art and design on show at the Victoria and Albert Museum this autumn

The announcement came as a big surprise. For the very first time, this summer’s Jameel Prize 5 was awarded to not one winner, but two. Despite Iraqi artist Mehdi Moutashar and Bangladeshi architect Marina Tabassum submitting separate artworks, they both share the prestigious award and £25,000 prize money, presented by Fady Jameel, president of Art Jameel, in a recent ceremony at Kensington’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A).

The biannual Jameel Prize shines a spotlight on the best contemporary art and design inspired by Islamic traditions and ahead of its international tour, art lovers can immerse themselves in the creativity of all the finalists in a fascinating exhibition that runs at the V&A until November 25.
