The NYUAD Art Gallery Shows Rare Collection of Work From 1960s Iran, Turkey, and India
Hyperallergic, December 7, 2021

On view in Abu Dhabi until February 5, 2022, the paintings and sculptures in Modernisms shed new light on artists like Parviz Tanavoli, Fahrelnissa Zeid, and M.F. Husain.

The NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery is delighted to welcome back visitors to its space for the exhibition Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection. This is the first physical exhibition in the gallery since it moved to virtual programs in the spring of 2020, and it will remain open to the public through February 5, 2022.

Modernisms first opened in New York City in 2019 and traveled to the Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University in the US before making its way to the UAE. The exhibition is the second collaboration between The NYUAD Art Gallery and NYU’s Grey Art Gallery. A number of works in the exhibition have remained in storage for the past half-century and this is the first time that many of them are returning to the wider MENASA region.
