Tarīqah

Barjeel Art Foundation

The word tarīqah in Arabic translates into English as a pathway or route. In addition to its more literal reference as a physical path leading to a destination, tarīqah can also be used to describe a method to achieve a particular result. References to tarīqah often appear in Islamic tradition to describe an individual’s inner spiritual journey. This exhibition showcases artists whose journeys of invention concentrate on the different ways of viewing and referencing Islamic tradition.
