The British Museum will open a new gallery in 2018 dedicated to a broad swath of Islamic art, the museum announced, according to the New York Times.
Set in a pair of currently closed galleries in the heart of the museum, the Albukhary Foundation Gallery of the Islamic World will include sections dedicated to Islamic art until around 1500, and to artifacts from three 16th-century Islamic dynasties — the Ottoman, the Mughal and the Safavid.
In a news release, Neil MacGregor, the director of the British Museum said, “These new galleries will allow us to present our collection in the context of world cultures, exploring the history, complexity and diversity of Islamic cultures across the world from sub-Saharan Africa to Malaysia and Indonesia.”
Several other museums have expanded efforts to present art and artifacts from the Islamic world in recent years.
