Emirati Artist Ebtisam Abdulaziz at AGSIW

The Arab Weekly discussed Emirati artist Ebtisam Abdulaziz, whose artwork is currently featured at AGSIW. Abdulaziz’s art uses geometry and mathemat­ics to express belonging and identity. Much of her artwork is autobiographical. Abdulaziz commented: “Artists are like journalists. We write the history of our times.”

Abdulaziz’s work on display at AGSIW includes a playful field of domino- or dice-like squares representing numerical street signs when she first moved to the United States and several pieces from her autobiographical series of 200 grid papers.
