The New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Art Gallery presents “Horizon,” a solo exhibition by American sculptor Blane De St. Croix, on view through January 14, 2024.
St. Croix stays on site and collaborates with scientists to study the natural characteristics of places and creates works in response to them.
The new work commissioned for the exhibition is the result of St. Croix’s collaboration with faculty and scientists at NYUAD over the past year, a 150-square-meter PET sculpture inspired by the “sabkhas” salt lakes and estuaries of the United Arab Emirates, made from more than 50,000 recycled plastic water bottles. Another commissioned work, “Infinite landscapes,” is also on view, as well as other unpublished works by the artist.

The Power Station of Art (PSA) in Shanghai presents “Arata Isozaki: In Formation” as part of its Architecture and Urbanism research and exhibition series.
Arata Isozaki (1931-2022) was a leading contemporary Japanese architect and Pritzker Prize winner whose multidisciplinary practice spanned architecture, fine art, and theory.
The exhibition organizes Isozaki’s artistic world into nine core concepts: “Ruin,” “Process,” “Cybernetics,” “MA/Trans,” “Isle,” “Genesis,” “New Form,” “Flux,” and “Atlas/Archipelago.” Models, sketches, installations, paintings, and videos on display, the exhibition traces Isozaki’s diverse career and his art’s cultural and ideological trajectory. On view through November 19.
