Nomadic Traces: Journeys of Arabian Scripts

Nomadic Traces: Journeys of Arabian Scripts explores the role that scripts have played in defining and preserving the cultural identity of past and present civilizations, and on the migrational and transformative nature of writing, and its ability to freely cross borders and cultures. The exhibition focuses on the development of some of the key Abjads (consonantal alphabets) of the Middle East. It poetically links the past with the present, revealing the wealth of the region through its many scripts, including Phoenician, Aramaic, Musnad, Palmyrene, Nabatean, and early Arabic (Jazm).

Lest We Forget: The Universality of Family Photographs

Family photographs express interest in, and affection for, the people, places, activities and moments that are most close and dear. Coinciding with the Year of Tolerance in the UAE, this exhibition and companion book explore universalities inherent in portraits of ourselves, taken by ourselves and for ourselves.
