Believe in a positive future despite the divisive world we live in and be ambassadors of tolerance around the world, Shaikha Lubna Bint Khalid Al Qasimi, Minister of State for Tolerance, told students of New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) during their graduation ceremony on Wednesday.
Maya Allison, founding director and chief curator of the NYUAD Art Gallery, shares her curatorial vision for the “But We Cannot See Them: Tracing a UAE Art Community, 1988-2008” show at the NYUAD Art Gallery.
The question might not just be how, but why? Why would you even attempt to adapt a graphic novel about robots in love into a puppet-show/real-time movie, soundtracked by a live string quartet and turntables? The genesis of Nufonia Must Fall – the multidisciplinary performance, which will be staged at New York University Abu Dhabi tomorrow and Friday – came about 17 years ago.
