Please join us for the opening of our Spring exhibition, when the NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery, will present the work of acclaimed Swiss artist Zimoun.

Curated by Maya Allison, Chief Curator at NYU Abu Dhabi, this landmark survey will mark the first time the artist has exhibited his work in the Gulf and will include a major new commission: an expansive, room-sized installation that will be unveiled on the opening night.

“I explore simple systems which involve various complexities in sound and motion. Through primitive mechanical systems, I look to activate simple and raw materials which then start to develop a complex behavior. The sounds my installations produce are generated immediately through the activation of the materials themselves. In fact, I like to refer to my work as ‘Primitive Complexities’”
