Join us for a conversation about MoAD’s current exhibition Baye Fall: Roots in Spirituality, Fashion & Resistance: Photography by Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, a photographic series that visually engages the Baye Fall, an enterprising sub-group of Senegal’s notable Sufi Muslim community, the Mourides. These images encourage viewers to contemplate Sufism in a West African context by exploring the community’s reverence for Baye Fall’s founder and leader, Cheikh Amadou Bamba, and his most celebrated disciple, Ibrahima Fall, the namesake of this suborder. Laylah Amatullah Barrayn will be in conversation with fellow photographer Adama Delphine Fawundu and Art Historian Ivy Mills.

This program will include a wine reception. Ticket holders for the Engage Symposium: Picturing Blackness on February 22, 2020 will receive complimentary admission to this event.
