Sadik Kwaish Alfraji is one of the most prominent artists working in the Iraqi diaspora today. This beautiful publication is the first monograph offering a comprehensive look into the world of this extraordinary artist whose distinct visual language addresses the vulnerability of human existence. Covering a thirty-year career, from his early work in the war-torn Iraq of the 1980’s, to later seminal projects, artist books, paintings, drawings, videos and large-scale installations, this book provides an in-depth overview and contextualisation of Alfraji’s work.
Edited by the leading curator and critic of contemporary Middle Eastern art Nat Muller, the book includes an in-depth interview with the artist and a critical text by renowned cultural historian of the Middle East and Professor at Brown University Shiva Balaghi.
