Our cover shows the façade of Louvre Abu Dhabi lit up with projections depicting distinctive Islamic geometric patterns for the landmark show Cartier, Islamic Inspiration and Modern Design. Showcasing the influence of Islamic art on the maison’s designs from the early 20th century to the present day, the exhibition reflects the theme of this issue, Crafting the Contemporary, in which we examine the impact of traditional craftsmanship on contemporary practices, the value of local knowledge and techniques in the production of artwork and the importance of community engagement, custodianship, education and conservation.
