Established in 2014, The NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Art Gallery is the Gulf’s
first and only university gallery with a program of scholarly and
experimental museum exhibitions. The program seeks to map new territories
and ideas through presenting exhibitions by internationally established
artists, curators, and scholars at its main space. Its auxiliary venue, the
Project Space, is an exhibition laboratory for the university community,
and for emerging artists and curators. Situated within NYU Abu Dhabi, the
community of which hails from over 115 countries, The Art Gallery organizes
free public programs and guided tours in conjunction with its
groundbreaking exhibitions. It also produces scholarly publications, which
are a core part of its curatorial frame and reflect its academic mission.
Collectively, with the Gallery’s Reading Room, these welcoming, intimate
spaces open up artistic opportunities and initiate regional and
international dialogue.
