On This Night for the First Time...
In a partnership between the Jean Paul Najar Foundation (Dubai) and American University in Dubai, Flounder curated two evenings of participatory performances by Areej Kaoud, Noush Anand, and Sarra'a Abdulaziz in February 2018.
Curated by Karim Sultan, the exhibition features new works by 10 UAE-based artists, in addition to visual poetry by guest artists Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian. The selected artists for the 2018 edition of UAE Unlimited are Amna Al Dabbagh, Cheb Moha, Chndy, Dina Khorchid, Farah Al Qasimi, Flounder Lee, Nasir Nasrallah, Saba Qizilbash, Salem Al Mansoori, and Shaikha Al Ketbi.
This partnership is the result of a shared vision between His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, founder of UAE Unlimited, and Abdelmonem Alserkal.
