Artist Talk: Gaza's Mohammed Musallam: Geography Torn

Event Type: Creative Nonfiction Reading
Event Date and Time:
7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Description: Living and Working in Gaza, Mohammed Musallam is a Palestinian artist and lecturer of “Painting and the History of Palestinian Arts” at Al Aqsa University. Musallam's artistic appraoch consists of the abstract portrayal of humanistic issues in a means that goes beyond the limitations of the concept of time. He concentrates on conveying the notion of the preservation of our humaneness amid the harshness of our environment as one of the most important reasons for our existence. It has taken years for Musallam to obtain a visa to visit the U.S. so Alwan is honored to host this wonderful artist from Gaza in a discussion of his latest work, Torn Geography, an anthology of his experiences over the last five years. Torn Geography includes artworks that present the problematic human attachment to a place and the continuous struggle surrounding it which represnets both death and a place for survival.
