Summary : The purpose of this study is to examine the representation of Islamic art in museums in the last decade, compared to its representation before the events of 9/11. In order to give an overview of various exhibition designs throughout the world, three renowned museums are surveyed: the Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Between 2003 and 2010-2011, the Museum of Islamic Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art renewed their galleries dedicated to Islamic art, while the Musée du Louvre created an entirely new department dedicated to Islamic Arts set to open in 2012. The author argues that these institutions' presentations of Islamic art are both modernized and Westernized. In a way, museums are exhibiting Islamic art without acknowledging Muslims or the religion of Islam; unconsciously a certain Orientalism (a term used by Edward Said), or neo-Orientalism, is taking place within these institutions. The data is gathered from visits to the galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as at the Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo. Although the galleries at the Musée du Louvre have yet to be inaugurated, the author was able to collect information through an internship with the museum. Moreover, qualitative interviews were made at the Louvre, as well as with the designer who renovated the Cairene museum and with Islamic art experts in Cairo. Various museum publications were analyzed, ranging from catalogues issued in 1907 to the most recent publications in 2011. In conclusion, there is indeed an explicit will to represent Islam away from the stereotypes that have risen in the past decade. Although the intent is sincere, Islamic art remains undefined, a complex and adverse issue, which might actually result in the hardening of these stereotypes.

Summary : A full-color guide to one of Egypt's leading museums. The Museum of Islamic Art, established in Cairo in 1881, houses one of the world's richest collections of artifacts from all periods of Islamic history and all parts of the Islamic world. Structured as a guide, but fully illustrated with superb color photographs, this book suggests a simple but comprehensive itinerary through one of Egypt's most fascinating museums. Taking readers through the various exhibits, this useful guidebook explains and illuminates the aesthetic and historic importance of the museum's main works on display, including metalwork, textiles, woodwork, glass, carved stone and ivory, and the art of the book. Also included are sections on two other small but important Cairo museums: the Islamic Ceramics Museum and the Islamic Textiles Museum. Written by one of the leading authorities on Islamic art and architecture, and lavishly illustrated throughout with specially commissioned color photographs, this is the definitive guide to Egypt's great collections of Islamic art.

Summary : " The goal of this thesis is to provide a look into how certain institutions that hold Islamic art collections are coping with, changing , and adapting to misconceptions regarding Islamic cultures in the wake of that day. The thesis will attempt to answer the question of how museums can exercise their power in defining the religious identity of cultures other than their own." -- Abstract.
