The NYUAD Project Space Presents:
"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.
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’
"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.
“Crossing and Corridors", features the work of Saba Qizilbash and Linda Adele Goodine, two artists who deal with harsh geopolitical realities in their work, through widely different methods.
