BETWEEN THE SKY AND THE EARTH: CONTEMPORARY ART FROM THE UAE

In partnership with NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery
Curated by Munira Al Sayegh
3 December 2021 - 31 March 2022


 

To mark the United Arab Emirates’ 50th anniversary, the exhibition introduces an intergenerational dialogue between artists who explore their social, cultural, and natural landscapes. With roots in the Gulf, the Levant, Southeast Asia and the United States, the artists—all of whom call the UAE home—examine themes around permanence and fluidity, time and memory through a range of subjects such as the environment, consumerism and the impact of rapid urbanization on individuals and societies.
