    News Release: Abdul Matin Malikzada

    Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design announces its next Artist-In-Residence, Abdul Matin Malikzada, from January 21 to 28, 2023. Malikzada is a seventh-generation potter from Istalif, Afghanistan - a celebrated epicenter of ceramic production in the country's east. During his residency, Malikzada will begin work on two unique ceramics for Shangri La, representing Istalif’s pottery traditions as contextualized by Shangri La and incorporating clay sourced from Oahu with the help of local ceramicist, Kahikino Noa Dettweiler, of the Hawai’i Potters’ Guild (HPG). The convergence of Malikzada and Dettweiler and their ceramic traditions will explore themes of materiality, making, and personal connections to place and culture. During the week of his residency, Shangri La will host community workshops with HPG and other Master Class demonstrations and lectures at the Honolulu Museum of Art School and Mid-Pacific Institute.
