The Undispossessed: Photographs by Yasser Alwan

Talk

WHEN October 20, 2011
6:30-8:30pm WHERE NYUAD Downtown Campus, Abu Dhabi WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

In conversation with Shamoon Zamir, Alwan discusses his first retrospective exhibition of photographs featuring images from Egypt as well as his 25 years of travel throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The photographs focus on the common and the quotidian; ordinary people going about their daily lives in a world that has been steadily decaying around them. Recently, however, his subjects have discovered that their collective strength lies in their individual weakness.

The public is invited to view The Undispossessed exhibit at the NYUAD Downtown Campus beginning at 4:30 PM.
