Commissioning the Emerging Artist
with panelists Ayesha Hadhir, Mona Ayyash, Maya Allison, and Laura Metzler
The NYUAD Art Gallery is pleased to present Commissioning the Emerging Artist in collaboration with UAE Unlimited. This panel of artists, curators, and institutions will ask, “what does it mean to commission a new artwork? What challenges are unique to the commission process? Where do the artist, curator, and funder intersect?” Panelists include artists Ayesha Hadhir and Mona Ayyash, as well as curators Maya Allison and Laura Metzler. The panel is presented on the occasion of the Tashweesh exhibition at Maraya Art Center, commissioned by UAE Unlimited, a satellite exhibition platform founded by His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan.
