At 6pm UAE TIME (2pmGMT) 25 March 2020, Global Art Forum will live-broadcast a “Newshour Special” dedicated to the stories and narratives shaping the current coronavirus fallout. As normal life is paused in much of the world and the immediate future is cancelled, our shared present feels strange and precarious. Right now, we live in order to tell each other stories. Hosted by Global Art Forum’s Commissioner, Shumon Basar, this Newshour Special will include appearances from Dubai based guests including Turner Prize co-winner Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Creative Director of the Museum of the Future Brendan McGetrick, Exhibitions Curator at Art Jameel Rahul Gudipudi; contributions from artists Ana Maria Nicolaescu and Nabla Yayha, and others.
Also, over the next few weeks, interviews, insights and personal impressions will be collected from the Global Art Forum’s alumni of novelists, filmmakers, philosophers, technologists, musicians, historians, artists and curators into a “Planetary Feed.” Because the current crisis is occurring at a speed and scale that stretches across the entire world, every individual voice is also part of this unpredictable, universal story.
Streaming details to follow shortly.
