More events include an artist talk and a film series titled Cinema RRH, to screen works that have played a meaningful role in the artists’ creative development.



Speaking on the announcement of the programme, Executive Director of The NYUAD Art Gallery Maya Allison, said; “A big factor in the ongoing success of Parthenogenesis is the way Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian have brought to life the inspiration they find in the UAE art community.

“For these artists, art is a living, breathing conversation with the audience. Their work contains profoundly serious elements integrated with playful ones, in a landscape that evolves with time.

“We are delighted to introduce a raft of events that invite visitors into this landscape and this evolution, to become collaborators themselves, with the art, the artists, and to share in their diverse influences.”

A Green Al Hosn App is required to participate in the events, which are free and open to the public upon registration.
