Artist Kifah Abdulla will create a performance that combines poetry, music, and the story of how he incorporates the art of calligraphy into his own work. Kifah Abdulla is a Portland-based artist, poet, writer, performer, teacher, and activist. Originally from Iraq, he lived for many years as a refugee in Jordan and Holland before becoming a U.S. citizen. This program is related to the exhibition The Sea in a Jug: The Welch Collection of Islamic and Later Indian Art.
