An Exhibition by Yamam Nabeel
18 – 29 April 2023
Faisal LAIBI SAHI
Yamam Nabeel pieces together his heritage through interviews, portraits and conversations with these giants of Iraqi and Arab art and culture.
A uniquely personal multimedia project, Yamam Nabeel’s photographic and short-film portraits of these artists are presented alongside selected works and photographs from the artist’s own archives. The exhibition balances the immense cultural worth of the artists’ crafts, from traditional calligraphy to abstract painting, with the warm human centre of their shared life stories.
I’m Migrant is part of a larger project of photography and written word, focusing on the lives of immigrant and exiled artists, poets and writers from the Arab world and their contribution to western culture.
