A Family Affair: A solo exhibition from Ibrahim Ali-Salaam

 

Beacon Gallery is pleased to support the presentation, in conjunction with the Brockton Public Library, of Ibrahim Ali-Salaam’s upcoming solo exhibition, A Family Affair

Opening August 4th, the show will run through August 30th with an artist reception on Wednesday, August 11th. 

Ali-Salaam’s exhibition consists of paintings centered around his series Beautiful Little Monster, an ongoing collaboration with his son, Joaquin (9). These pieces represent both his son’s growth, Ali-Salaam’s evolution as a father, and the re-making of their family unit after a 2017 divorce. Every few months the two collaborate, making a piece that represents both a bonding experience and a chance to mark the passage of time. 

Much of Ali-Salaam’s current work is connected through the linked concepts of one’s sense of self and family, and how we love deeply and make sacrifices for those we care about most.  Through this series Ali-Salaam seeks to capture, in his own way, some of the trials and tribulations of parenthood through a contradictory lens of emotion: offering both the joy and challenges of parenthood, family and caretaking wrapped up together.  

Join the artist on Wednesday August 11th from 6-9 pm for a reception at the Joseph A. Driscoll Gallery in the main branch of Brockton’s Public Library to celebrate these works. 

 
About Ibrahim Ali-Salaam (b. 1976, Boston, MA, USA)

A graduate of the School of Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Ali-Salaam has been a professional artist for 20 years. He currently resides and practices his art in Boston, where he lives with his son, Joaquin. He is represented by Beacon Gallery.

The Grotesque 10

Select American colleges and universities decorate their architecture with grotesque sculpture. Armed with a camera, a sense of irony as well as determination bordering on obsessive, photographer and author Mathew M. Duman has traveled to ten such campuses in search of their most compelling ornamentation.

In this lecture, he points out many curious aspects of the Collegiate Gothic style of architecture and shows how these features are meant to enhance an institution's identity both on and off campus. His talk is acompanied by a slide presentation full of examples of his original photography which offer an up close look at this amazing sculpture.
