21 Dec Artist Talk with Abdul Abdullah
Join artist Abdul Abdullah in the space of his group exhibition Violent Salt, co curated by Yhonnie Scarce and Claire Watson.
‘Abdul Abdullah is an artist from Perth, currently based in Sydney, who works across painting, photography, video, installation and performance. As a self described ‘outsider amongst outsiders’, his practice is primarily concerned with the experience of the ‘other’ in society. Abdullah’s projects have engaged with different marginalised minority groups and he is particularly interested in the experience of young Muslims in the contemporary multicultural Australian context, as well as connecting with creative communities throughout the Asia Pacific. Through these processes and explorations Abdullah extrapolates this outlook to an examination of universal aspects of human nature.’ – Excerpt from Abdul Abdullah’s website biography https://abdulabdullah.com
