Reflection and Return: Visual Arts Event

Abdu’Allah’s practice incorporates Printmaking and Photography as a tool for capture to serve his desire to reframe the past and make tangible the present.
On Sunday, May 20th, Faisal Abdu’Allah, a Photographer, Screen-print Maker, Installation Artist – and Barber !!, from UW-Madison’s Art Department, will visit the MIT Club of Wisconsin to discuss his work. Abdu’Allah’s practice incorporates Printmaking and Photography as a tool for capture to serve his desire to reframe the past and make tangible the present. As a collective body his practice amounts to an informal and personal interdisciplinary “institute of information” that works to challenge the academies of science, philosophy and the arts, grounded in an acute understanding of the seductive nature of the material world and moulded through ongoing enquiries into how the visual works upon and within the construction of difference … If the relationship between history and violence represents unending and uneven threads of knowledge, when these dynamics are woven together we are primed to consider Abdu’Allah’s works as signposts towards a new becoming, and a place of human existence where celebration and healing are reflected and returned through challenging the discourse of history.
