The Portland Museum of Art presents “Ahmed Alsoudani: Redacted,” the first major museum exhibition of the work of American-Iraqi artist and Maine College of Art graduate Ahmed Alsoudani. The exhibition will feature nearly 20 of the artist’s tumultuous and innovative paintings which reflect on the horrors of war with a unique artistic voice. Ahmed Alsoudani: Redacted will be on view through December 8, in the PMA’s celebrated Third Floor Gallery for Contemporary Art.   “Challenging the viewer with nuanced art historical arguments and blatantly difficult, abject, and grotesque imagery, Alsoudani does what few artists can do: he successfully translates the complexity of contemporary politics into meaningful painting,” said PMA Director Mark H.C. Bessire. For more information visit portlandmuseum.org.
