Anomalous Expansion is a landmark exhibition that features work by six Somali Minnesotan artists — highlighting their art while asking the following questions: What is their role & responsibility as Somali artists? What does s/he have to say, contribute to and produce on the contemporary local and global artscape? In other words, what is his/her artistic station?
Anomalous Expansion elaborates on the significance of the sacred space, the Masjid, as both a public and private sphere — and in this instance serves as an alternative art location that affords these artists the footing to contemplate and address conceptually both the Sublime and the Real through a culturally grounded aesthetic.
Anomalous Expansion features work by Abdi Roble, Aziz Osman, Ifrah Mansour, Kaamil Haider, Mohamed Hersi, and Mohamud Mumin.
