The National Pavilion United Arab Emirates (UAE) has appointed Hammad Nasar to curate the UAE’s exhibition at the 57th International Art Exhibition at la Biennale di Venezia (Venice Biennale).

The exhibition will explore the artistic practices of the UAE through the analogy of play. Through the lens of imagination and non-linear exploration in art-making, the exhibition will stage a “collective conversation” between projects from selected UAE-based contemporary artists. The 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia will run from May 13th to November 26th, 2017. The National Pavilion UAE is commissioned by the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation and supported by the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development. In his curatorial approach, Hammad Nasar considers exhibitions as a form of inquiry often working collaboratively.
