The Middle East Institute Arts and Culture Center cordially invites you to the opening of Between the Sky and the Earth: Contemporary Art from the UAE on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Arab Emirates.
Curated by Abu Dhabi-based independent curator, Munira Al Sayegh, in partnership with The NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery, the exhibition features twelve artists reflecting the diverse contemporary art ecosystem in the UAE today. With roots in the Gulf, the Levant, Southeast Asia, and the United States, the artists – all of whom call the UAE home – challenge standard narratives about the Emirates through an intergenerational dialogue exploring their social, cultural, and natural landscapes.
Join our open house on Friday, December 3, from 6pm-8pm as part of the First Friday Dupont art walk tradition and meet curator Munira Al Sayegh, as well as participating artists Hashel Al Lamki and Solimar Miller.
You can visit the exhibition by appointment only, as of Monday, December 6 2021 (M-F from 10-5pm). Please make a timed appointment
to visit the MEI Gallery (1763 N Street NW, Washington, DC 20036
). The exhibition will also be available to view online on MEI’s Arts and Culture page as of Monday, December 6 and will run through Thursday, March 31st, 2022.
