Souad Abdelrassoul & Tahir Karmali
The Armory Show, Booth P9, New York, 9-11 September 2022
Souad Abdelrassoul (Egyptian b. 1974) & Tahir Karmali (Kenyan b. 1987)
For our second Armory Show presentation, Circle will show a selection of new paintings by Abdelrassoul and silk works by Karmali. Abdelrassoul’s paintings continue her exploration of her place as a woman, and her relationships within a patriarchal society. Karmali’s silk-works focus on migration and transformation of materials across geographies and economies, extending investigations begun in earlier works. Abdelrassoul’s painterly language and approach to visual storytelling offers a counterpoint to Karmali’s investigations of material and form.
