This talk between artists Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti with the Permanent Temporariness exhibition curators, Salwa Mikdadi and Bana Kattan explores how the artists developed a collaborative approach to an artistic practice that examines the potential of decolonization of architectural sites within conflict zones.

The talk also focuses on the art exhibited and performed across NYUAD campus and Gallery and how their projects depart from the traditional reduction of refugees to merely victims and instead develop a wider interrogation of the present condition of impermanence and displacement affecting a vast number of people living as guests in host countries.

After the talk, please join us for a reception and artist and curator tours in the main gallery, next to the Welcome Center, in A4.
