2021 VISUAL CAMPAIGN


The Visual Campaign artworks for Abu Dhabi Art 2021 were the result of Abu Dhabi Art 2019 Beyond: Emerging Artists programme. The UAE artists, Ayesha Hadhir, Rawdha Khalifa Al Ketbi and Shaikha Fahad Al Ketbi, worked with established artists, Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian, to develop their practice and realise their ambitious art projects.

Neither Visible… Nor Concealed
“At this very moment in time, the development of online economy and instant global communication, the advancement of autonomous machines and devices and the extension of gadgets and micro-computers to and into our bodies have created a new understanding of our own bodies in relation to the future, the city and the communities we are a part of. All of this allows for a different discourse wherein our pluralized selves emerge as a reconfigured presence that takes precedence over our individualized self in relation to the world. Shifting between individual and Collective modes of reality, the body experiences a sense of weightlessness and of being present in multiple places at once as it oscillates between absence and presence.” Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian, co-curators, Beyond: Emerging Artists 2019
