Intimaa: Belonging Exhibition at NYUAD
Supported by the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development and curated by Emirati arts researcher Nasser Abdullah, this exhibition will present photography and sculpture by a number of UAE-based emerging artists. These include Emirati artist Saeed AlMadani, Emirati multimedia artist Sarah Al Mehairi, Algerian cultural cartographer Sofiane Si Merabet and Syrian multimedia artist Majd Alloush.
As with past editions, this year will feature the established artist-mentor, Saudi-Palestinian guest artist Dana Awartani. These artists have also received mentorship from Dubai-based Iranian artists Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian throughout the process.
In a new, unique development, Intimaa: Belonging will also introduce commissioned poems by rising Emirati poets Ahmed Al Mannai, Ali Al Mazmy, Hassan Al Najjar and Shamma Al Bastaki - all of whom have been supported and guided by the award-winning poet, writer and presenter Khalid Albudoor.
