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.
