What is between the eyelid and the eye: Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim and Maya Allison in conversation
The National Pavilion UAE for the 59th Venice Biennale presents Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim: Between Sunrise and Sunset, an installation of human-sized, abstract, and organic sculptural forms inspired by the environment of Khor Fakkan, Ibrahim’s hometown in the Al Hajar Mountains on the east coast of Sharjah. Ibrahim chose Maya Allison, Chief Curator and Executive Director of NYU Abu Dhabi as the curator of the pavilion. In September 2020 Ibrahim opened a solo exhibition Memory Drum at Lawrie Shabibi, Dubai and had a conversation with Maya Allison about his practice. The 59th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2022 will open to the public between 23 April - 27 November 2022.

For his first exhibition in a UK institution, Creuzet has filled the upstairs gallery in Camden Arts Centre with a dense installation incorporating music, video, poetry and sculpture. Creuzet’s distinctive sculptural language often repurposes found materials; relics of detritus washed ashore by oceans or the unrelenting progress of history.
