A new workshop Metamorphosis: Collaborate. Negotiate. Let Go” is organized by the NYUAD Art Gallery Teen Council for the exhibition Parthenogenesis”. The event will take place at the NYUAD Art Gallery on Saadiyat Island on Saturday, May 28th, at 4:00pm. To take part in the event, visitors are asked to register.

Participants are going to interact with the exhibition that in is now taking place at the NYUAD Art Gallery, “Parthenogenesis”. They are going to create art with the use of one of the artists’ strategies when artworks become “fields of negotiation”. As a group, participants will be using drawing, collaging, and painting to collaborate and negotiate. They will take turns to draw on one shared canvas.

The “Parthenogenesis” exhibition is hosted by the NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery from March 1st to June 12th, 2022. It is the artists’, Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, and Hesam Rahmanian, first solo exhibition in the UAE. For it, they have created a landscape in the gallery that traces the artwork’s evolution about the artists’ engagement with others.

Originally from Iran, these artists have been working together, making a network of continuously evolving ideas and dialogues with collaborators, artists, and visitors to their homes. Their artwork has originated from the energy created by continuously evolving relations: between themselves, towards their work, and in their environment. 

Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian are famous for their immersive, surreal projects, performances, paintings, and animations. Their art has been shown internationally at multiple biennials and museums.

The NYUAD Art Gallery is an intimate museum space in a university setting. Modeled on the academic museums of the US, the curatorial program explores locally relevant and internationally significant subjects. This model of scholarly, experimental, non-commercial art exhibitions complements and enhances the region’s fast-growing cultural ecosystem.
