The inaugural exhibition featured art works that consider a past and the imagined future as experienced through a specific site. It opened the new 7000 sf gallery space at the New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) campus in November 2014. Hypsos, working with Curator Maya Allison, produced the exhibition titled “On Site”.
The exhibition explores the link between natural landscapes and the built environment. Among the pieces is Mohammed Ahmed Ibrahim’s “Stones Wrapped with Copper Wire”, an installation of large smooth rocks, which Ibrahim found in the mountains of Khorfakkan. The exhibition “On Site” runs until January 17, 2015 at NYUAD Art Gallery.
Hypsos was responsible for the complete exhibition build including setworks and lighting.
