The NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Art Gallery is pleased to announce the next exhibition at its auxiliary venue, the Project Space. Titled Intimaa: Belonging, this exhibition is the sixth in a series organized by UAE Unlimited, a satellite platform supported by His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan.

Taking place from February 15 to March 28, 2020, this exhibition will feature new commissions by UAE-based emerging artists who question their place in an era of globalization and how, through the rise of technological advancements, society has formed a unified existence that can be referred to as a ‘universal identity’.

Curated by Emirati arts researcher Nasser Abdullah, Intimaa: Belonging will feature photography, sculpture by a number of UAE-based emerging artists including Emirati artist Saeed AlMadani; Emirati multimedia artist Sarah AlMehairi; Algerian cultural cartographer Sofiane Si Merabet; and Syrian multimedia artist Majd Alloush. In a new development, the exhibition will also feature newly-commissioned poems by poets to be announced closer to the opening. As with past editions, this year will feature an established artist-mentor, Saudi-Palestinian guest artist Dana Awartani. The artists will also receive mentorship from Dubai-based Iranian artists Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, and Hesam Rahmanian.
