26 Fe­bru­ary – 1 June 2019 / NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery For the first time in the Gulf, the in­spir­ing work of ac­claimed Swiss artist Zi­moun will be pre­sented at NYUAD’S aca­demic mu­seum-gallery, cu­rated by the Uni­ver­sity’s Chief Cu­ra­tor and the Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor of the NYUAD Art Gallery, Maya Al­li­son. Five im­mer­sive au­dio-visual in­stal­la­tions will be on dis­play, in­clud­ing a ma­jor new com­mis­sion, an ex­pan­sive room-sized in­stal­la­tion that will be un­veiled on the open­ing night. The artist con­structs un­ex­pected, im­mer­sive sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ences us­ing lo-fi, ana­logue mo­tors con­nected to var­i­ous func­tional ob­jects, like wooden sticks, card­board boxes and foil. The move­ment of these sim­ple ob­jects cre­ate all of the sound in Zi­moun’s in­stal­la­tions. Con­tin­u­ing to show­case the im­mer­sive na­ture of his work, the Gallery’s read­ing room will be ac­ti­vated with multi-chan­nel com­po­si­tions from a record la­bel project that Zi­moun co-founded, which pro­duces ex­per­i­men­tal mu­sic projects on CD, DVD, print, and sound ob­jects, with nearly 100 works from 50 in­ter­na­tional artists and de­sign­ers. nyuad-art­gallery.org
