Solo Exhibition By MGTF's Artist In Residence: NAJJAR MUSAWWIR & SHAMSUL BAHARI (EXTENDED UNTIL 27 AUGUST 2011)
SOLO EXHIBITION BY NAJJAR MUSAWWIR
Title: MUHAMMAD SPEAKS: Preserving an American Voice
26 July - 27 August 2011
The connection between art and science in Muzium & Galeri Tuanku Fauziah, Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang has been more than an intellectual pursue, it has been a personal one. Twenty years ago at Southern Illinois University, I approached a young passionate and inspiring Malaysian fine art student, Hasnul Jamal Saidon, and inquired about his life and creative interest. This relation become a pivotal period in my creative journey as an art student. You see, as a young African-American Muslim student of art, I was excited by the opportunity to share both my creative and Islamic experiences in America. Twenty years later, I've been given an opportunity again to share my creative and Islamic experiences.
In this exhibit I am experimenting with preserving African-American Islamic history in a new body of work titled MUHAMMAD SPEAKS: Preserving an American Voice. This exhibition reflect images from the Muhammad Speaks newspaper (1964-1975) founded by the late Nation of Islam national spokeman Al Hajj Malik Shabazz, better known as Malcolm X. I have come to realizes that an artists should be commited to the creative process of experimenting with art making and thinking, because it is the foundation of everything within the human existence. Therefore, the art can and will become timeless. In light of this, these pieces were created to preserve a certain historical aspect of the African-American Islamic cultural experience in America. It is my hope, that this exhibition will be embraced by viewers as a doorway back into one of America's historical realities living today - African American Muslim.
SOLO EXHIBITION BY SHAMSUL BAHARI
26 July - 27 August 2011
An individual would appear in one's life whose personality and passion, creative energy and enthusiasm acts like a spark that lights up one's own, Najjar Musawwir has this effect on me.
His presence, his loud African American gregarious personality, his no holds barred attitude has challenged my own waring interest in art and creativity in general. I felt awakened from my slumber, my creative energy was given a jumpstart and I accepted the challenge to hold this impromptu exhibition alongside his as a compliment and a honour for his being here.
ADMISSION IS FREE
(All are invited to the exhibition)
