Permanent Temporariness

Permanent Temporariness is a mid-career retrospective of the artist duo Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti. They are co-directors of DAAR, an architectural studio and artistic residency and founders of Campus in Camps, an experimental educational programme.  Their practice moves between art, architecture and pedagogy, often operating outside the typical art exhibition venue format. Large-scale installations are displayed both inside the Art Gallery and outdoors around the NYU Abu Dhabi campus.



The NYUAD Art Gallery is located at the main entrance to NYUAD’s Saadiyat Campus. It is an academic museum-gallery that presents curated exhibitions of art and material culture across historical and contemporary topics, with a special emphasis on subjects of both regional concern and international significance. The current exhibition programme centres on three themes: landscape and the built environment, Islamic art and culture and art in global dialogue.
