City of Miami Dade Mayor to inaugurate the exhibition “War to War” by Iraqi sculptor Ahmed Al- Bahrani. Miami-Dade County Mayor Tomas P. Regalado will formally inaugurate on December 3rd at 3:00PM the exhibition “War to War” by Iraqi sculptor Ahmed Al- Bahrani. The show presented by Gary Nader Art Centre will be on display at the premises of the Bayfront Park, 301 N. Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL from December 3, 2013 thought January 3, 2014. Ahmed Al- Bahrani’s (Babylon, Iraq b. 1965) occupies a distinguished position among the work of Arab contemporary sculptors. The figurative oeuvre that will be presented in this show has an overpowering aesthetical discourse with a humanistic output of universal implication; this new series stands against the war and gun violence, making a breakthrough in contemporary art. His realistic images are portraits of political, religious and pop personalities, among others, carrying all type of armaments. Al- Bahrani’s with his repertoire of large-scale sculptures creates a state of affairs in receptors contrary to what they’re comfortable with, by interacting conventional and unconventional symbols. The artist creates a powerful connotation that deeply touches the set of shared beliefs, ideas and moral attitudes that operate as a unifying force within society.
