Danny McCarthy Clifford - Disapproved Books

Danny McCarthy Clifford Presents The Section of Disapproved Books

Why would a prison ban a book about Chicano art? Or military history? Or computer programming? Or an autobiography of Malcolm X? After all, such books are readily available to anyone not in prison for purchase or through one’s public or academic library. Visual artist Daniel McCarthy Clifford has his own theories, and he’s doing additional research and using his art to raise awareness of what seems to be an arbitrary process of deciding what can and can’t be read by inmates in prisons across our nation. “It’s injustice,” he says. “History is being withheld [from inmates].”
Lamia Abukhadra

Lamia Abukhadra Profiled in MN Daily

Lamia Abukhadra is many things: smart, savvy, creative and politically aware. She is one of few Palestinian-American artists in Minneapolis — something that gives her pride and has helped shape her identity. Abukhadra’s thought-provoking art explores her family history and dissects structures of colonialism that eventually forced her family out of Palestine.

Alum Lamia Abukhadra (BFA'18) Jerome Print Residency

Alum Lamia Abukhadra (BFA'18) is one of three fellows awarded the 2018/2019 Jerome Emerging Printmakers Residency at Highpoint Center for Printmaking. During her residency, Lamia's work will challenge the harmful, dominant narratives which perpetuate acts of violence and ethnic cleansing in Palestine and the Middle East. She will investigate the events, ecologies, architecture, recipes, photographs, maps, and other archival materials associated with important figures and events in Palestinian history and their connection to her experience. She is excited to expand her concept of matrices and the power of the multiple.
