In Real Time

NYUAD Art Gallery


The NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Art Gallery will open its spring exhibition, titled In Real Time, on February 22. Running until June 9, with this exhibition, Chief Curator Maya Allison tests one of the limits of the curatorial form: when is an exhibition complete? What happens when we allow an exhibition to grow and change at its own pace?

To investigate this question, Allison will allow the list of artists for In Real Time to continue to grow after the exhibition opens, along with the artworks themselves. Some of the artists include  Moza Almatrooshi, Rana Begum, Chafa Ghaddar, Gözde İlkin, Sol Lewitt, Cristiana de Marchi, Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian, and Haleh Redjaian, among others. The Art Gallery’s Instagram account will announce artists and artwork developments in real time as the exhibition launches and during its run.
