About the talk

“How am I going to fix myself? How am I going to make good?” With such candor, artist Igshaan Adams addresses his traumatic wounds of the past. Through his practice, Adams seeks a path to healing, a way to cope with memories. His artistic practice is inspired by Muslim Sufism and other forms of belief he witnessed growing up. Adams uses techniques and materials from his community to create environments that bear witness to his search for his true self. A short film about his work is followed by a conversation between Adams and E.A.T. curator Daniel Baumann.

“It was never about getting to a certain point, but rather about the process itself becoming transformative.”
