Amado Alfadni curated by Najlaa El-Ageli - Alternative Museum of The Sudan
By appointment - [email protected]
Sulger-Buel Gallery is pleased to present 'The Alternative Museum of The Sudan' exhibition for the Sudanese-Egyptian artist Amado Alfadni, curated by Najlaa El-Ageli.
Born in 1976 in Cairo, Amado Alfadni's childhood was composed of two distinct environments: the Cairene Street and the Sudanese home. The relationship and the tension between these two cultures strongly influenced his views, making him question the subject of identity with its related rhetoric, as well as the variables of nation and ethnicity in his work.
This solo highlights Alfadni's deep research-based investigations into the forgotten silenced histories of the Sudan. He utilizes postcards, photographs and oral archives in order to reveal the complex relationship between colonialism and Black Africa, as well as the intermingled histories of Black Africa, Egypt and North Africa.
NajlaaEl-Ageli, an architect with over twenty years of experience in the profession,founded Noon Arts Projects in 2012. A small private arts foundation, with amission to bring the best of contemporary Libyan art, from both emerging andestablished artists, and expose it to the world stage.
