After the sh*tshow that is 2020 so far, can April 1st even be considered April Fool’s Day? We think not. But unlike past years that were rife with bad jokes and worse pranks, the start of this April will kickstart a NYUAD Arts Center series to look forward to: Reconnect.
First Dubai, then Sharjah, and now Abu Dhabi – one by one, the major cultural institutions of the UAE are stepping up, practicing social distancing while keeping the local arts and culture scene going. Alserkal Avenue recently launched Alserkal Online, a digital platform where audiences can explore art exhibitions (complete with 360° views) and meet the artists, minds, and makers of the community. Sharjah Art Foundation, meanwhile, has taken the scheduled screenings of its SAF Film Programme online. But back to Reconnect.
