We love it when a new exhibition arrives in Abu Dhabi, and the ones at the Project Space are always fascinating.

This arty venue is found in the Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery, and on Tuesday June 11 it is opening up a brand new collection.

Rand Abdul Jabbar: Earthly Wonders, Celestial Beings is a display of sculptures that transcend geographic boundaries.

The collection is a result of Iraqi artist Jabbar’s research into the cultural and architectural heritage of Iraq, with a particular focus on its ancient Mesopotamian past. 

The collection will officially launch with an opening reception at 5.30pm on Tuesday June 11 and it will continue to be open from Saturday to Thursday between 3pm and 10pm.

The gallery is free to enter, but you only have until June 29 to go and check it out.
