Permanent Temporariness: Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti

WHEN February 24 - June 9, 2018
12-8pm WHERE NYUAD Art Gallery WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery
Open to the Public

NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery’s spring 2018 exhibition will be Permanent Temporariness, a mid-career retrospective of the renowned, award-winning artist duo Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti. The duo are co-directors of DAAR, an architectural studio and artistic residency program that combines conceptual speculations and architectural interventions, and founders of Campus in Camps, an experimental educational program in Palestinian refugee Camps.  Their practice moves between art, architecture and pedagogy, often operating outside the typical art exhibition venue format. This is the first survey of their work in a museum/gallery context. 

Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 12-8pm. Closed Sundays.

For further details, please visit the NYUAD Art Gallery website.
