Jameel Shortlist

The V&A has named the ten artists and designers shortlisted for the biennial Jameel Prize 2011 (title link). Shown are Hadieh Shafie's Two Scroll Books (2010). The winner of the £25,000 prize will be announced at the V&A on 12 September. Don't hold your breath. The cartoon in the next post down strikes me as a more interesting example of contemporary Islamic art, but I doubt if Gaddafi will give the artist a prize if he catches him!
