New York University Abu Dhabi


Venue Function(s):


Venue Location:

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates



NYU’s agreement with the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to create NYU Abu Dhabi is the outcome of a shared understanding of the essential roles and challenges of higher education in the 21st century: a common belief in the value of a liberal arts education, concurrence on the benefits a research university brings to the society that sustains it, a conviction that interaction with new ideas and people who are different is valuable and necessary, and a commitment to educating students who are true citizens of the world.

NYUAD is hosting a showcase of electronic art on the theme of afterimages, traces, resonances, and reverberations, relating to the conference’s own general theme on “Location”. It is the inaugural show in the project space on the new Saadiyat campus.
