Faisal Abdu’Allah’s Live Salon with Ron Dayne
March 23, 2023
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Madison Museum of Contemporary Art
227 State Street Madison, WI, 53703
In addition to being an artist, Faisal Abdu’Allah is a barber, a profession he has fully integrated into his artistic practice, most notably through his community-based Live Salon performances (2006–present). During each Live Salon session, he provides a haircut to a willing participant and engages them in open-ended conversations about issues surrounding contemporary social identity and representation.
On Thursday, March 23, former University of Wisconsin-Madison Badger running back, Heisman Trophy winner, and NFL player Ron Dayne will take a seat in Abdu’Allah’s Belmont barber’s chair in the MMoCA lobby.
This event is associated with the exhibition Faisal Abdu’Allah: DARK MATTER.
