Since its opening in 2009, 19 WSN has hosted over 20 exhibitions featuring photography, painting, and works on paper in its multi-purpose Events Space. With a focus on connectivity to NYUAD, the exhibitions highlight research projects of faculty and researchers from across NYU's schools. It has also featured creative works by many leading artists.
Exhibitions may be accompanied by artist talks, scholarly panels, or lectures with support from the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute or a 19 Washington Square North Program Grant.
The NYUAD Art Gallery continues to be an integral thought partner in the annual planning of the curatorial program, and often facilitates bringing exhibitions from the Gallery or Project Space on Saadiyat Island to the New York campus.
