LAST CHANCE Moments in Their Time
Some really rather good arts practitioners have day jobs at NYUAD, and this exhibition gives 11 of them a chance to show their concepts, methods, and styles as explored in larger-scale projects both locally and internationally.
The first such faculty exhibition, Arts Faculty: The Exhibition, took place in 2015 and included 17 artists, many of whom return to this year’s exhibition. Moments in Their Time includes works from Arts Professor of Visual Arts Tarek Al-Ghoussein; Assistant Arts Professor of Visual Arts and Interactive Media Jonny Farrow; Associate Arts Professor of Visual Arts and Literature/Creative Writing Jill Magi; Assistant Professor of Practice Surabhi Sharma; Associate Dean of Arts and Program Head of Art and Art History David Darts; Assistant Arts Professor of Arts and New Media Wendy Bednarz; Assistant Arts Professor of Film and New Media Scandar Copti; Visiting Assistant Professor of Interactive Media Heather Dewey-Hagborg; Program Head and Assistant Arts Professor of Interactive Media Aaron Sherwood; Assistant Arts Professor of Arts Practice Sandra Peters; and Lecturer of Visual Arts Laura Schneider. Their media include photography, film, sculpture, installation, digital art, painting, and print.
This exhibition is co-curated by Tala Nassar, NYUAD Art Gallery Curatorial Fellow, and Awam Ampka, who labours under the title Associate Professor of Drama, Social, and Cultural Analysis and Program Head of the Film and New Media Department.
