Iraqi Exile Art [10/22/2008 09:44:00 PM]:
I don't get out to art exhibits as much as I'd like, but the stuff they have at The Station
always grabs me, for some reason; they seem to have a lot of art from downtrodden, oppressed folks, and that kind of thing tends to be stark, raw, and intriguing. (At least to me, anyway.)
So, following in that trend, we got a card yesterday about the next art opening at the place, this time for an exhibit called Iraqi Artists in Exile, and it looks pretty intense and, I'm guessing, utterly heartbreaking. Heck, the poster itself is already haunting me.
The opening's on Saturday, November 1st, right after Halloween, from 7-10PM, w/"music & refreshments" supplied. I've got no clue if it costs anything to get in, so make sure you bring a bit of cash, just to be prepared. The exhibit'll be running after that, of course, and will run through February 1st of next year.
I don't know any of the artists involved, I'm afraid, but seeing as I'm no authority on arty stuff, it's possible you might, right? In case you do, here's the list (taken from the Station's Website):
- Ali Talib Alkayali [Alkayali apparently did the exhibit poster, btw.]
- Abdel Karim Khalil
- Ayad Alkadhi
- Dia Azzawi
- Faisel Laibi Sahi
- Hanaa Malallah
- Himat Mohammed Ali
- Jananne Al-Ani
- Kareem Risan
- Nedim Kufi
- Mahmud Al Obaidi
- Mohammed Al Shammarey
- Rafa Nasiri
- Sadik Kwaish Alfraji
- Shakir Hasan Al Said
There you go...
