Jameel Prize 5

A quick visit to the V&A to see the Jameel prize show (till 25 November). Worth £25,000, the prize is an international award for contemporary art and design inspired by Islamic tradition, awarded every two years.

It's spaciously displayed in the Porter Gallery, just off the front entrance, and there's a film introducing the finalists: Kamrooz Aram, Hayv Kahraman, Hala Kaiksow, Mehdi Moutashar, naqsh collective, Younes Rahmoun, Wardha Shabbir, and Marina Tabassum.

My favourite piece -
"House in Gaylani" by Hayv Kahraman

See examples of work by other finalists here.

And the winner? ... the first joint winners ... Mehdi Moutashar and Marina Tabassum.
