This exhibition captures a moment in time —  professional time, academic time —  for these 11 Arts faculty at NYUAD. It offers a small glimpse into concepts, methods, and styles our faculty artists continue to explore in larger scale projects, locally and internationally. Here, they exhibit in the same building where they conduct their practice and teaching. The first faculty exhibition, Arts Faculty: The Exhibition took place in 2015 and included 17 artists, many of whom return in this year’s exhibition. The returning viewer can see how their work has changed over time, as well as discover the work of new members of the faculty. The mediums include photography, film, sculpture, installation, digital art, painting, and print.

The exhibition is curated by Associate Professor of Drama, Social and Cultural Analysis and Program Head of the Film and New Media Department, Awam Amkpa, with NYUAD Art Gallery Curatorial Fellow Tala Nassar.
