Join us for the opening reception of Kifah Abdulla’s new exhibition! In Art – Arabic Calligraphy – And Me, Kifah explores abstractions of Arabic calligraphy.
Kifah Abdulla was born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq, where he studied art. Calligraphy in abstraction is a true inspiration to him, As an experimental artist, he wants his artwork to be different from all the other artworks around him.
In Kifah’s own words, “I use the tradition of calligraphy to deconstruct the image-making potential form. I feel becoming freer and more experimental so I allow the calligraphic impulse to manifest in a more abstract cursive style.”
This energetic exhibition marks the long-awaited return of MSA’s visual arts gallery hosted at our theater. We hope you will join us to celebrate Kifah’s art!
Friday, April 1 | Doors open at 6:00 PM; Opening remarks at 6:30 PM
FREE & open to the public. Libations & light snacks will be provided.
The reception is at our theater located at 10 Mayo Street, Portland ME 04101.
