6 PM WHERE Register for the Virtual Event WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery Open to the Public

Award-winning artist Amar Kanwar joins scholars in a public virtual roundtable to explore interconnection as the globe battles with COVID-19.

Moderated by Executive Director of The NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery Maya Allison, the roundtable will explore the effects of COVID-19 on how we see points of connection that, pre-pandemic, may not have been as tangible in our day-to-day lives.
