The NYUAD Project Space Presents:
Saidi Ali Nasser Sowafy’s paintings immerse audiences in richly symbolic visual representations of 20th-century Ugandan village cultural and social life.
Curated by Emirati arts researcher Nasser Abdullah, "Intimaa: Belonging" will feature new commissions by UAE-based emerging artists who question their place in an era of globalization and how society has formed a unified existence that can be referred to as a ‘universal identity’
"Go Back to Move Forward" presents artworks by fourteen artists who grapple with an unsettling past, a turbulent present, and an imagined future. These artists navigate the socio-political landscapes of the Arab world and reimagine reality through collective memory.
"Moments in Their Time..." offers a small glimpse into concepts, methods and styles our faculty artists continue to explore in larger scale projects, locally and internationally.
A unique, immersive, and multi-sensory exhibition that explores the interplay between science and art.
"Thymesis" bears witness to memory as the fallible medium of self-creation. The exhibition features an "earliest memory" archive, old family photographs, mixed media drawings, and incorrect illustrations of the natural world.
"Earthly Wonders, Celestial Beings" conceives of Iraq as a spatial, rather than territorial construct, setting up a conversation across the past and present in the language of reverberating forms.
