Many thanks to longtime SGCI member Miranda Metcalf for her interview with SGCI’s President, Dr. Faisal Abdu’Allah! From her website: “In this episode of pine|copper|lime Miranda speaks with Faisal Abdu’Allah. Faisal is known for his ambitious and political installation art pieces which utilise photography and printmaking. We’ll talk about his childhood growing up in London as the son of Jamaican immigrants, the place of the barber shop is his Afro-British community and how it left such an indelible mark on his art practice, as well as why media and process and integral to his ideas, and how he centres community in his exhibitions. Faisal is also the current president of the Southern Graphics Council International so we get a first hand account of how the organisation is adapting 2020 and the future of our beloved conferences.”
