The NYUAD Project Space Presents:
Curated by Hashel Al Lamki and featuring the latest work by artist Almaha Jaralla, this exhibition recounts the recent history of the Arabian Peninsula through the observation of collective memories of indigenous people and their relocation within the region.
The Flow of Stillness is a solo exhibition that takes audiences on a journey in nature. Artist Mahmood Al Daoud finds inspiration in nature in all of his works, and ever since moving to the UAE, he has been taken by the UAE’s unique environment.
Allow Me Not to Explain is a solo exhibition that grew out of the artist’s struggle to explain what her work is about.
This exhibition is an interactive installation looking at the retro arcade experience and explores the community and spirit that lived in these spaces.
