New exhibition comes to university art gallery

NYU Abu Dhabi invites us to consider the evolution of humans

NYU Abu Dhabi has revealed its next show, and it looks amazing.

Alibadah explores the concept of existence and how humans have evolved as a species.

Housed in the Project Space, the exhibition features over 25 paintings and sculptures from Hashel Al Lamki and Mohammed Al Mazrouei. The works are inspired by the dialogues that took place between the two artists while one was living in Abu Dhabi and the other in Cairo.

Emirati artist Hashel Al Lamki uses his work to examine the rapid industrial and architectural growth that has taken place in the Emirates.

Mohammed Al Mazrouei has a similarly strong connection to the country as he resided in the UAE for four decades before moving to Egypt.  He has always been very involved in the city’s art scene, working for Abu Dhabi’s cultural foundation for many years and also serving as head of the writer's union.

The opening reception for Alibadah will take place from 6:30pm to 8:30pm on September 26, while the exhibition is available to view until October 13.

Free. Sep 26-Oct 13. The Project Space, NYU Abu Dhabi (02 628 8000).
