In his first U.S. institutional exhibition It Will Always Come Back to You Kuwaiti-born, Giza-based artist Ibrahim Ahmed invites you to explore powerful mythic narratives. These are the stories that have influenced the migrations of so many from the Global South – including his own family.
Through photo collage, sculpture, video, and large-scale installation, Ahmed wrestles with the cultural forces that prevail in the working-class neighborhood of Ard El Lewa in Giza, within his family, and even his own body.
It Will Always Come Back to You is on view at the ICA at VCU from July 23 through November 7.
