When Opposites Attract: The Fusion Calligraphy of Haji Noor Deen
The Chinese and Arabic calligraphic traditions have often been compared as two of the world's finest manifestations of the written word. They are at once opposites and complements. In his extraordinary work, the master calligrapher Haji Noor draws deeply from these two rich lettering traditions to present a distinctive calligraphic style that is both Eastern and Western.
Zaytuna College and the Center for Islamic Studies at the GTU are delighted to host Haji Noor for a special lecture (in Arabic, with concurrent English translation) followed by a demonstration of his calligraphy. Haji Noor's artwork will be on display and for sale after the event. Light refreshments will be offered.
Location: Zaytuna College 2401 Le Conte Avenue, Berkeley
