Amer Alobaidi Caravan of Exile: The recent paintings of AmerAlobaidi.
The Gallery in the Round at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ames, 1115 Hyland Avenue, Ames is proud to exhibit the work of the well-known Iraqi artist Amer Alobaidi, whose work can be found in nearly every major museum of modern art in the Middle East. Mr. Alobaidi is the former Director of the National Museum of Modern Art in Baghdad, which was looted during the war, and served as the General Director of Fine Arts of Iraq for five years. This show, entitled “Caravan of Exile,” presents Mr. Alobaidi’s newest work. His colorful large-format paintings feature groupings of human figures, horses, and birds, in various evocative scenes from Arabian legend and present-day life. The show runs from August 30 – October 8; hours are Monday – Friday, 10-2 or by appointment. The public is especially invited to attend the artist’s reception, on Saturday, September 11, from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m., at which there will be live music and Middle Eastern food and dancing. This celebration, occurring the day after the 2010 Ramadan season ends and on the 9th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the U.S., is part of Ames’ 11 Days of Global Unity, and should serve to remind us that the human spirit shared through the arts is more precious than those things which divide us.
Mr. Alobaidi’s story is as dramatic as his paintings. His family was forced to leave Iraq in 2007, when the country was wracked with sectarian violence bordering on a civil war. At that time, many of the nation’s intellectual elite were targeted by extremists. He lost a son in a car-bomb explosion, which also wounded his wife Sawsan. The couple fled to Syria with their then-17-year-old daughter Bedor, where Mr. Alobadi continued to paint and sell his paintings to dealers and collectors who knew his work. When their safety even in exile felt compromised, they were relocated as refugees to Des Moines. Only one rolled-up canvas made the trip with them. In the two years since their arrival in August, 2008, Mr. Alobaidi’s work has evolved to reflect his journey, creating an imaginative world of beauty where family, community, tradition, and loss all play a part.
