The exhibition In Process | In Progress presents projects and artworks from the first-year Master of Fine Arts students of NYUAD inaugural class of 2023. Participating Artists are Elizabeth Dorazio, Fabiola Chiminazzo, Liane Al Ghusain, Majd, Alloush, and Mahra Alfalahi.
NYU Abu Dhabi’s Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Art and Media is a terminal degree in the visual arts. It is a full-time, interdisciplinary studio art program combining practice and theory, tradition and change in the arts. The MFA degree consists of 60 credits over two years of residential study.
The MFA students conduct contemporary research and art practices which they train in order to be deep thinkers and artistic innovators. Students experiment with art within a context of theoretical, cultural, and historical study. Its multidisciplinary coursework unites disciplinary skills and various knowledge.
“The MFA program is uniquely positioned to create new discourses in the field by virtue of its geographic location and the student body it attracts. Students from vastly different cultures, beliefs and orientations gather here and are creating new visions of what Abu Dhabi, the Emirates, the Gulf, and the wider region is and can be. This is supported directly by the flows of NYU’s global network and Abu Dhabi’s proximity to points east of traditionally western-centric art discourses,” says Tarek Al-Ghoussein, MFA Program Director.
In Process | In Progress will be open to visitors until August 21st, 2022, at Warehouse421, which is open 10:00 – 20:00.
