Center for the study of Arab art opens in Abu Dhabi

(ANSAmed) – NAPLES, JANUARY 14 – The Arab Center for the
Study of Art has opened at New York University Abu Dhabi. The
academic center in the capital of the emirate is dedicated to
visual arts of Asia and North Africa and is located in Saadiyat
Campus. It will also organize events and prepare publications on
the history of Arab arts. The center also has a program of art
residencies.

It will be directed by Salwa Mikdadi, the newspaper The
National reported. Mikdadi is a professor of art history at the
university in Abu Dhabi. She is considered one of the top
experts in the history of Arab and contemporary art, and she
will be aided by two other professors, May Al Dabbagh, and
Shamoon Zamir.

”We need to set our own standards, our own historical
narrative about this region, from this region”, Mikdadi was
quoted as saying by the newspaper. ”We’re looking at revising
the canon of art history in this region”.

The center is opening in a university which focuses its
research on the entire Arab world, with 80 research centers that
range from climate models to the history of family businesses in
the Middle East and North Africa. One of the highlights will be
the multi-disciplinary approach to better contextualize Arab
art, compared to how it is seen by external sources. (ANSA).
