ABDU’ALLAH, Faisal. The Art of Discolation.
(Stanford, CA): OrbisAfrica Publishing, 2010. First edition. Quarto. 76 pages. Scarce catalogue for the controversial British artist’s first major solo exhibition in the United State and his largest retrospective to date. The exhibition mapped 20 years of the artist’s practice. His work subverts conventional discourses of myth and iconography that is complex and politically-telling while both ideologically and aesthetically challenging. His practice stands counterpoint between representation and materiality; constantly repositioning forms and values relating to the tensions between making and articulating difference. A near fine copy in photo-illustrated wrappers.
