Exhibition at the Aga Khan Centre Gallery explores the concept of Eden through Islamic garden design

5 May 2021

In London, the Aga Khan Centre (AKC) Gallery is presenting Making Paradise, a major new exhibition that explores the concept of Eden through art and Islamic garden design. Realised in collaboration with all three institutions at the AKC, the show brings together 22 international multimedia artists each of whom presents an interpretation of the concept of Al-Jannah -the Garden of Eden, or Paradise in Islam. At the centre of the exhibition is a film produced by the AKDN. This not only highlights the many garden restoration and development projects achieved by the AKDN, but also powerfully conveys the message of His Highness the Aga Khan who believes gardens are rich and rewarding places of gathering, not only capable of inspiring delight, but also of strengthening a sense of global community.
