Doris Duke's Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art
Doris Duke's Shangri La is a five-acre Honolulu estate and its carefully orchestrated surrounding landscape and interior design. This exhibition brings this treasure to audiences throughout the continental United States for the first time. Docents will introduce Doris Duke's fascination with Islamic art, her extensive travels in Muslim countries, and her work with a broad array of individuals. Some sixty objects—ceramics, textiles, paintings, tile panels, and full-scale architectural elements—are juxtaposed with historic photographs and drawings. In addition to Ms. Duke’s collections, the exhibition will also include new works by eight contemporary artists, all of Islamic background, who participated in the Shangri La Artists-in Residence program.
