Ihab Ali's PUMP performance involves walling off a section of the Icehouse basement using bricks. Visitors will be unable to access a portion of Ihab's installation as the evening progresses.
Ihab Ali was born and raised in Damascus, Syria, before relocated to Southern California as a teenager. He received his BFA in Ceramics in 2016 from California State University Long Beach. Nostalgia permeates Ihab's body of ceramic, performative, and installation work. Furthermore, his work reveals connections between art and life, particularly in regards to political structure, compromise, cultural understanding, and social collapse. Ihab's work has been recently featured at the Hason House exhibition. He currently works as a ceramics technician at Irvine Fine Arts Center.
Ihab Ali is part of Michael Nannery’s Mind Games – Group Exhibition.
