Above Below and Below Below | The Project Space – NYU Abu Dhabi | 8 November – 3 December 2016
The Art Gallery at NYU Abu Dhabi is pleased to announce the next show at its auxiliary venue, The Project Space. Above Below and Below Below will showcase the eclectic oeuvre of NYU Abu Dhabi faculty member John Torreano, with artworks spanning the media of painting and photography.
The body of artworks in Above Below and Below Below contain Torreano’s observations and fascinations with the city of Abu Dhabi, his students, and reflections on an artistic life lived between Abu Dhabi and New York. While these works draw inspiration from the visual world of the U.A.E. and the desert, they also help us to envision new possibilities and dimensions inspired by the mysterious worlds far above and below us. In their totality, these paintings and photographs also offer a brief glimpse into the inner and outer spaces of a true painter’s imagination.
Torreano has taught at NYU since 1992, and has made important contributions to the University’s arts community. He has headed up the Painting & Drawing Program, directed the MFA in Studio Art Program, and created and taught hundreds of NYU classes in New York, Italy, and Abu Dhabi. Since 2011, he has been a key arts faculty member at NYU Abu Dhabi, returning each academic year for a full semester.
Opening hours – Saturday-Thursday 15.00-22.00 | Opening Reception on Thursday, November 10, 5 – 6:30 pm. Free and open to the public.
