Curated by Flounder Lee
March 10th - March 26th, 2019
NYUAD, Project Space
Crossings and Corridors featured the work of Saba Qizilbash and Linda Adele Goodine, two artists who deal with difficult geopolitical realities in their work through widely different methods. Qizilbash’s intricate, enticing drawings lure the viewer into a charged, hostile space, such as a border crossing between Pakistan and India. Goodine’s work, massive, complex, and vividly colorful deals with topics such as the rising conflicts in the struggle between land conservation and economic progress.
Hosted by Tashkeel and held during Sikka Art Fair in Al Fahidi, Dubai. House of Failure was a show about experimentation and failure in the arts. Flounder exhibited Mapping the Juneau Glaciers and moderated a panel titled "The Artist and Failure".
Additionally, for their Critical Practices Program, Flounder has been mentoring Jalal Bin Thaneya for his upcoming exhibition, "Beyond the Fence". Flounder is contributing an essay for the catalogue as well.
