Hedar Abadi’s solo exhibition, Save Our Fish From Drowning, encapsulates the artist’s entrancing and well-versed artistic skill that is equally as fascinating and engaging as his lived-experiences. Abadi references the open social context of his new home in Liverpool after fleeing war-torn Iraq where he lived, trained and worked as a propaganda painter during the authoritarian reign of Saddam Hussein.

As the winner of the 19th Liverpool Art Society Exhibition Scholarship Prize in 2016, Abadi received $1,500 and an opportunity to show his works in a dedicated Marsden Gallery exhibition in 2017.

Saturday 25 March
2:00 – 4:30pm

As part of Harmony Day 2017 and in conjunction with the Hedar Abadi’s Marsden Gallery exhibition Save Our Fish From Drowning, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre will be hosting a day filled with artist talks, poetry, music and food inspired and performed by the diverse Iraqi communities based in Liverpool. Come join us for a day of festivities.

This is a bilingual event (Arabic and English).
