Research Studio: Annotations – Interdisciplinary practices of the early 80s, UAE
1 November 2017 @ 7.00 pm - 9.00 pmFree
Through Annotations, the Research Studio of Project Space Art Jameel aims to actively engage with material that documents the UAE’s cultural histories – reproduced images, essays, observations and summaries. In bringing the interview to life and adding to it, this Studio explores alternative research methodologies for ‘thinking in public’ and working with nonlinear history-writing and representation. The interpretations in turn help inform the Jameel Arts Centre’s research library and its focus on arts histories of the UAE and the GCC.
‘Interdisciplinary practices of the early 80s, UAE’ follows Art Jameel’s collaboration with Rock, Paper, Scissors: Positions in Play, the National Pavilion United Arab Emirates 2017 exhibition at this year’s Venice Biennale. It takes as inspiration an interview with the poet Khalid Albudoor and artist Nujoom Alghanem, titled “A Dialogue between Rhythm and Form”, published in the exhibition’s accompanying book. The conversation reflects on the overlap in interdisciplinary practices of the early 1980s, particularly vis-à-vis poetry, theatre and art writing in the UAE.
To 21 December.
