But We Cannot See Them: Tracing a UAE Underground, 1988-2008

But We Cannot See Them: Tracing a UAE Art Community, 1988-2008

Dates: March 2 – September 2, 2017
Location: NYUAD Art Gallery

The UAE has, and has had, many creative communities, both apparent and unknown. This exhibition focuses on one such formation, sometimes called “the 5,” a number that in fact varied in the decades framing the 1990s. It had at its core an intersection of artists, writers, and filmmakers from the UAE, South Asia, and Europe
