Debunking the stereotypical ideas and media representation about Iraq and the issues that surround it is an integral part of multimedia artist, painter and curator Sundus Abdul Hadi’s work.
Sundus’s parents are Iraqi and she was born in the UAE. The family migrated to Montreal, Canada was she was about 11 years old. Art runs very deep in her family as her mother is an artist, father an architect, husband a musician, and sister a photographer. She, her husband, and her sister are also a part of a multimedia artist collective called The Medium.
Sundus’s work has been exhibited in places like Palestine, UAE, Canada, USA, France, UK and Saudi Arabia. She has also been a speaker at Nuqat, the Arab Development Initiative, the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, and at multiple universities in Canada and the US. She also hosts ‘Al Ruwad: The Groundbreakers’, a radio show about art and culture on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal. Read more: http://thefloatingmagazine.com/people-sundus-abdul-hadi/
