OUR GUEST SPEAKERS: AMADO ALFADNI SUDANESE EGYPTIAN VISUAL ARTIST & NAJLA EL-AGELI FOUNDER OF NOON ART PROJECT
Amado AlFadni is an artist who was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1976 to Sudanese parents. His childhood environment was composed of both the Cairene street and the traditions of a Sudanese household. The relationship and the tension between these two different cultures strongly influenced his views, making him question the subject of identity with its related rhetoric, as well as the variables of nation and ethnicity in his work. The ‘Alternative Museum of The Sudan’ is Amado’s first solo exhibition in London, that traces the findings of his five-year journey and research into the buried histories of the people of the Sudan who were badly affected by colonialism and other interruptive external forces
Najlaa El-Ageli is an architect with over twenty years of experience in the profession.
