In celebration of the release of the first monograph on Swiss artist Zimoun, the NYUAD Art Gallery invites you to a conversation between publisher Anne Renahan from Akkadia Press, which specializes in bilingual English-Arabic art books, and Maya Allison, curator and editor of the Zimoun book. The conversation will center around publishing artists’ work.
Following the talk, we will celebrate the launch of the book and closing of the exhibition with a Suhoor and extended gallery hours from 9:30pm to 12am.
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.
“The Sovereign Forest” is an ongoing multimedia installation that is a creative response to crime, politics, human rights, and ecological crisis.
