Exhibition podcast: “Cartier, Islamic Inspiration and Modern Design”

In this episode, we are visiting the exhibition “Cartier, Islamic Inspiration and Modern Design” with Fakhera Alkindi, senior curatorial assistant at Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Through the lens of Cartier’s creations, we will see how the Islamic arts became a major source of inspiration for western designers as the world stepped into modernity at the turn of the 20th century.

From masterpieces of the Islamic arts to the design sketches made in Cartier’s workshops, and finally to magnificent pieces of jewellery, dive with us into the mind of Cartier’s designers and discover how this Islamic inspiration lives on today.
