Join us on Wednesday, November 27th at 5:30pm in the Project Space for the opening reception for Go Back to Move Forward.
This exhibition presents artworks by thirteen 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.
Student Curators: Ward, Alya Alawadhi, Fatema AlNuaimi, Fatima Al Kindi, Hessa Al Nuaimi, Roudha AlShehhi, Sara AlZaabi, Nada Ammagui, Lee Hyun Choi, Bernice delos Reyes, Diego Arias García, Dahee Kim, Cristalina Parra Nuñez, Anita Shishani, Insun Woo.
With special thanks to H.E. Dr. Zaki Nusseibeh, Professor Salwa Mikdadi, the NYUAD Art Gallery Team, and all those who recorded their responses to the artwork.
“Your Message Could Not Be Delivered” offers an opportunity to engage with the hidden world of the systems we rely on daily to communicate with one another. The individual and communal experiences of the participants as they actively participate in the installation are as much a part of the created artwork as the resultant sculptures. The visitor becomes part of the artifact.
