Contemporary Photography in the Middle East

February 8, 2012

Exhibition Opening | 5:30-6:30 PM
Artist Talk | 6:30-8:00 PM

Location: 19 Washington Square North

Yasser Alwan Cairo-based Photographer
Shamoon Zamir
Associate Professor of Literature and Visual Arts, NYUAD

In conversation with Shamoon Zamir, Yasser Alwan discusses his first retrospective exhibition of photographs hosted by NYU Abu Dhabi, which features images from Egypt as well as his 25 years of travel throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The photographs focus on the common and the quotidian; ordinary people going about their daily lives in a world that has been steadily decaying around them until they discover their collective strength lies in their individual weakness.
