April 24, 2019 at 7:00pm

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto//Faluda Islam\\ is an artist, performer, zombie drag queen and curator of mixed Pakistani, Lebanese and Iranian descent. His work explores complex identities formed by centuries of colonialism and exacerbated by contemporary international politics. Bhutto unpacks the intersections of queerness and Islam and how it exists in a constant liminal and non-aligned space. Bhutto was curatorial resident at SOMArts Cultural Center where he co-curated, The Third Muslim: Queer and Trans Muslim Narratives of Resistance and Resilience, and was a Fall artist in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Bhutto is currently based in the Bay Area, where he also received his MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2016. Today he works as a teaching artist, community arts facilitator and part time unicorn in San Francisco.

This lecture is supported by the Herringer Graduate Lecture Series.
