A roundtable with Sandi Hilal, Alessandro Petti, Salwa Mikdadi, and Bana Kattan, moderated by Maya Allison.

In this reunion, artists Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti, talk with co-curators of the exhibition Permanent Temporariness, Salwa Mikdadi (Art Historian) and Bana Kattan (Curator). The conversation will be moderated by Maya Allison, Executive Director of The NYUAD Art Gallery.

The conversation will trace the exhibition from the origins of the various landmark installations, to their collective re-staging in the first institutional retrospective of Hilal and Petti’s work at The NYUAD Art Gallery in 2018, to the exhibition’s tour to the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven in 2019. The panelists will explore how the context changes the meaning and relevance of the exhibition, as well as its intention and message. In addition, the artists will talk about how the exhibition led to their latest publication of the same name, produced together with the Van Abbemuseum in collaboration with The NYUAD Art Gallery. The book accounts for 15 years of research and experimentation.
