Ayad Alkadhi Lecture

January 23, 2013 - January 10, 2013
Mānoa Campus, Art Building

In Residence Jan. 18 - 30, 2013

Born and raised in Baghdad, Alkadhi currently lives and works in New York City. Alkadhi’s work focuses on cultural and political topics of Iraq and the Middle East. His use of street art language, Arabic newspaper on mixed-media canvases, as well as his use of calligraphy, connects elements of traditional media to contemporary art. This collision produces images that ultimately express the artist’s concern with the polarities of Middle Eastern politics.

Alkadhi received his MFA from the New York University's ITP Tisch School of the Arts. His most recent exhibits include: the Queens Museum, the Austrian Cultural forum and the Herbert F. Johnson Museum in New York; the Station Museum in Houston, Texas; the Maraya Art Centre in Sharjah in the UAE. Alkadhi’s visit is sponsored by the Laila Twigg-Smith Art Fund of the Hawai’i Community Foundation, Shangri La, and SFCA. www.aalkadhi.com
