The Islamic Art Exhibition Saida - "The Art of The Islamic Books From Leiden University Collection"

After great success in Cairo, Alexandria, Tripoli and Beirut, The Islamic Art Exhibition will come to Saida this Fall.

We invite you to visit the historic Khan el-Franj in Saida, from 23 October to 22 November, to admire over forty high-resolution reproductions of the most extraordinary calligraphy, manuscripts, illustrations and decorations from the collection of the University of Leiden.

As one of the first in Europe, The University of Leiden founded its Chair in Arabic in 1613. The maturity of the faculty reflects the strong historical ties that have existed between the Netherlands and the Arab World throughout the past four centuries.

The Islamic Art Exhibition Saida has been made possible by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in cooperation with the Hariri Foundation for Sustainable Human Development, the University of Leiden, the Lebanese American University, and the Municipality of Saida.
