At a time of ‘re-normalisation’ after more than two years of pandemic living, seven UAE-based artists respond to the post-pandemic zeitgeist: memories of an invisible virus that forced us to disconnect, coupled with a quest for a rebalancing connection between ourselves and the external world. This exhibition is split between two galleries: Etihad Modern Art Gallery and Manarat Al Saadiyat.
