* Login to add events... *
Today's date is Saturday, October 24, 2020
Creative Expressions of Muslim Identity through Contemporary Art : Presented by The Centre for Muslim States and Societies and Alif Arts Hub Other events...
In recent years there has been an international boom of contemporary arts by Muslims living in and outside the West. This global eruption of creative expression defies traditional boundaries by melding histories, lived experiences and artistic practices in an effort to express multiple Muslim identities.

Creative Expressions of Muslim Identity through Contemporary art is a unique symposium bringing together world-renowned French-Tunisian graffiti artist eL Seed and Sydney based graphic designer Peter Gould alongside an array of emerging Perth artists including Tusif Ahmad, Suzi Elhafez and Abdul Abdullah.

The Symposium will focus on two themes; Classical interplays of Islamic art and Creative expressions of Muslim experiences to answer the following questions:

• What is the importance of arts and creativity in Islamic traditions? • What are current understandings of arts and creative expression in Muslim communities locally and internationally? • What opportunities and challenges exist between ‘traditional’ or ‘classical’ Islamic art and contemporary art by Muslims? And; • How do Muslim artists interpret their experiences of being Muslim into multiple contemporary art forms?

We expect the symposium to be open and constructive with the aim of listening and viewing the work of the artists and panelists.

Guests are also welcome to join the artists and other guests for a post-symposium dinner at 6pm.
