Sydney Contemporary

Discover with Abdul Abdullah—

The talent behind our SC Presents 2020 identity, Australian multi-disciplinary artist Abdul Abdullah shares his top picks from Explore Sydney Contemporary, online from 11–21 November 2021.

"I look for a few different things when buying art. I look for works that excite and challenge me - this could be what they are communicating or the special ways they are communicating it. I look for artists who consistently contribute to a critical dialogue. I look at artists' CVs. I also look for works that bring me joy."

Abdul Abdullah is an Australian multi-disciplinary artist. As a self-described ‘outsider amongst outsiders’ with a post 9/11 mindset, his practice is primarily concerned with the experience of the ‘other’. Abdullah’s projects have engaged with different marginalized minority groups and he is particularly interested in the disjuncture between perception/projection of identity and the reality of lived experience. Abdul is represented by Yavuz Gallery.
