Talk | Adel Abidin "YA!"
Join us Wednesday, March 13th, 2019
TALK with Adel Abidin about his current exhibition YA!
Starting at 6:00 pm
Wiping history through political self-acclaimed correctness, winking to an era of paradoxical idealization; questioning the devaluation of humans.
“We came to K*ll your Father” a haunting sentence in the ears of a girl as she is skinned off her home, values, thoughts. A sentence still resonating through another long gone century.
Where is the father when the adoration of a god becomes merely the idealization of a costume; of a hypothetical history to which our only references are but the debris of a destroyed culture, memory.
Ya ..., would we, Arab civilizations shout in adoration to the mystical ghostly figure. This ghost, its rubber gloves, playing with our memories, playing with facts, wiping history as the human becomes insignificantly negligible.
Ya! a solo exhibition by Adel Abidin, following the global theme of the devalorization of values, humans, ideals, and religion, through the presentation of five artistic projects all delving into the same subject of political incorrectness.
