“I’m not going to measure somebody by whether or not they’ve had a show at the MoMA,” Maya Allison on her curatorial techniques and how she forged a successful artist-curator bond ahead of the UAE Pavilion at the 2022 Venice Biennale

5 November 2020

In this week’s episode, Hashem, a long-time art enthusiast & collector, is joined by Maya Allison, Executive Director & Chief Curator of NYUAD’s Art Gallery, who shares glimpses of her professional journey leaving the New York/American art scene and moving to Abu Dhabi to establish The NYUAD Art Gallery. Maya reflects on how she measures the ripple impact of artists she’s interested in; the growing pains of managing an art-focused “start up” and what’s in store for the upcoming UAE Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale.
