Ghadah Alkandari’s solo show Secretary is a visual account of the artist’s last six months leading to October 2014. As with many of her exhibitions, this collection is a series of journal-based drawings grouped into three main installations. A dynamic show, Alkandari hopes to entice visitors with the promise of touching, organizing and re-organizing her work. After all, a secretary’s job is never done.
