We are honored to welcome artist Waleed Qaisi on a talk titled “Object against the Object” to tell us about the relationship between abstract reality and reason and how questions are raised in the spirit of the material and its hidden metaphysical effect within the domain of art. This is by addressing his own experience with the creative act in addition to referencing other forms of Arab and international art.

Waleed Qaisi was born in Baghdad in 1963. He studied ceramics at the Institute of Fine Arts in Baghdad and graduated in 1985. He presented his artistic vision through participating in the first youth exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Baghdad in 1985. He continued his participation in the collective exhibitions in 1983, declaring his rebellion against form (breaking it and changing its concept) and searching for other areas of disfiguration to create a state of imbalance through form and line. He has participated in many personal and international exhibitions, In addition to his possession of many awards for his achievements in the arts.
