Thirty-six artists from the Arab world experiment with the ceramic medium.

Born as an initiative of the Kinda Foundation for Contemporary Arab Art, Objects of Imagination is a unique collaboration of 36 artists from across the Arab World, in which both traditional and innovative techniques were used to create a body of ceramic artworks. Over the course of nine months, the Foundation invited a group of Arab artists to a dedicated ceramic workshop in Amman, Jordan, supervised by Delair Saad Shaker and Waleed R. Qaisi. Each artist created artworks in a variety of techniques, often pushing their practice beyond traditional ceramics.

The catalogue includes an in-depth analysis of the project by art historian Dr. Jessica Gerschultz (Associate Professor at the University of Kansas and a 2018 Hans-Robert Roemer Fellow at the Orient-Institut Beirut), situating the works in the history of regional ceramic production from the ancient world through the Islamic era to the modern day.
