It’s time to throw minimalism out the door and embrace the amazingly ornate objects in this latest exhibit at Asia Society Texas Center. “Stunning detail, beautifully executed and with the richest of materials,” describes Bridget Bray, Nancy C. Allen Curator and Director of Exhibitions, about “Wondrous Worlds: Art & Islam Through Time & Place.” While most Islamic exhibits concentrate on the Middle East, North Africa or South Asia, the more than 100 objects in this show also include pieces from Southeast Asia, the Americas and East and West Africa, ranging from the 9th century to contemporary works.

There’s a free preview from 6 to 8 p.m. on September 21 and a curator talk at 11 a.m. on September 23. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday. Continuing 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. September 23 through February 25. 1370 Southmore. For information, call 713-496-9901 or visit asiasociety.org/texas. Free to $5.
