ABU DHABI, 29th April, 2022 (WAM) — NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery (NYUAD) has announced its public schedule in May and June as part of its ongoing exhibition, Parthenogenesis: Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian.
Free events include family gallery tours, a film series called Cinema RRH, and an artist talk about the nature of collaborating and creating new work across artists’ different disciplines.
The program will allow participants and visitors to engage in conversations around ideas of refuge, artistic creation and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Each event encourages different entry points through speaking, listening, viewing and doing. Events will begin with a curatorial tour led by NYUAD Art Gallery Executive Director Maya Allison, and subsequent events include a one-day family tour, an event hosted by the art gallery’s Teen Advisory Board , an artist talk and film series titled Cinema RRH , to screen works that have played a significant role in the creative development of artists.
Commenting on the program, Allison said: “A significant factor in the continued success of Parthenogenesis is the way Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian have brought to life the inspiration they find in the UAE artistic community. For these artists, art is a living and breathing conversation with the public. Their work contains deeply serious elements integrated with playful elements, in a landscape that evolves over time. We are delighted to present a series of events that invite visitors into this landscape and this evolution, to become collaborators themselves, with the art, the artists, and to share their various influences.
A green status on the Al Hosn app is required to participate in the events, which are free and open to the public upon registration. Guests are asked to arrive 15 minutes before the start time. Parthenogenesis: Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian runs until June 12.
Parthenogenesis presents the trio of artists, originally from Iran, who adopted the United Arab Emirates as their homeland. They are known for their immersive and surreal projects, performances, paintings and animations, which have been exhibited internationally, in multiple biennials and major museums. In their first institutional solo exhibition in the United Arab Emirates, the artists create a landscape in the gallery that traces how a work of art develops through an artist’s relationships with others. Parthenogenesis is a testament to their 13 years in Dubai as artists living and working together, creating an ever-changing landscape and tapestry of ideas and dialogues with collaborators, artists and visitors in their home.
