The United Arab Emirates at the 57th Venice Biennale 2017

May 2017


Rock, Paper, Scissors: Positions in Play

Curated by Hammad Nasar, the exhibition explores a strand of artistic practice in the UAE through the analogy of play. Featuring existing works, re-fabrication of 'lost' works and new commissions, the exhibition will stage a set of nested questions: Where does 'playfulness' in artistic practice come from ? How and where is 'play' nurtured? What does 'play' do?

The five featured artists are nationals and long-term residents who call the UAE home: Nujoom Alghanem, Sara Al Haddad, Vikram Divecha, Lantian Xie and Dr. Mohamed Yousif

2017 is the fifth participation of the United Arab Emirates at the International Art Exhibition, la Biennale di Venezia.
