MetFridays—Conversation with an Artist: Prayer Rug with Niche Design, Islamic Art

Free with Museum admission

Peter Hristoff, Artist in Residence, Education Department and Department of Islamic Art, The Met

Experience a lively dialogue with an artist about an object that especially intrigues him.

A fine artist and member of the faculty at the School of Visual Arts, New York City, Peter Hristoff treats teaching as an integral component of his practice. He uses painting, drawing, printmaking, and traditional Turkish rug making to create works that are at once personally, socially, and politically resonant.

This artist in residency program is made possible by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
