Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

Abdullah Qureshi is an artist, educator, and cultural producer. Through his research and production, he interrogates ways that queerness and resistance manifest within Muslim contexts. Qureshi’s work has been exhibited internationally, and he has held numerous positions at cultural and educational institutions including British Council and the National College of Arts, Lahore. In 2017, Qureshi received the Art and International Cooperation fellowship at Zurich University of the Arts and is currently a Doctoral Candidate at Aalto University in Finland and Research Fellow at the Center for Arts, Design, and Social Research, Boston.

Within his doctoral project, entitled 'Mythological Migrations: Imagining Queer Muslim Utopias through Contemporary Art', supported by Kone Foundation through a three-year grant, Qureshi responds to an urgent need to recognize queer Muslim voices and challenges rampant Islamophobia in Europe, contextualizing narratives of Muslim LGBTIQ+ refugees and asylum seekers in Finland in Islamic history, mythologies, and contemporary art.
