Portrait of Abdul Abdullah

Abdul Abdullah

Abdul Abdullah is a Sydney-based artist, originally from Perth, who works across painting, photography, video, installation and performance. His works are included in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the University of Western Australia, Murdoch University, the Islamic Museum of Australia and the Bendigo Art Gallery. In 2015, Abdul will be exhibiting at Primavera at the Museum of Contemporary Art and at the Asia Pacific Triennial at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane.  

As a self-described ‘outsider amongst outsiders’, his practice is primarily concerned with the experience of the ‘other’ in society. Abdullah’s projects have engaged with different marginalised minority groups and he is particularly interested in the experience of young Muslims in the contemporary multicultural Australian context.
