Plastic Fantastic is curated by Professor Felix Beck, New York University Abu Dhabi, Engineering Department, and Marie-Claire Bakker, Zayed University, College of Arts and Creative Enterprises, as part of the Precious Plastic WANA Conference 2018
Featuring work from more than 30 artists, created in reaction to the insidious nature of our reliance on plastic, this exhibition addresses the crisis by elevating plastic from waste to fine art, from toxic material to redemptive metaphor.
Open to the public
Participating artists will be present.
Presented in a series of new installations, these artists explore the very concept of environment - natural, artificial, virtual - and share a distinctly arch, speculative, conceptual practice, extrapolating imagined worlds within existing ones.
"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.
The NYUAD Art Gallery presents "The Sovereign Forest" in a groundbreaking collaboration with Ishara Art Foundation which hosts Kanwar’s solo project "Such a Morning" from January 20 – May 20, 2020.
