Urban Fabric
The Christo and Jeanne-Claude Award 2022 Winner
November 2022

In collaboration with Roudhah al Mazrouei and Jennifer Tsai
with mentor Goffredo Puccetti

Urban Fabric is a series of sculptures resembling pieces of thread. These forms are intertwined and interlaced into the ground. They turn the physical environment around the art piece into a canvas that the thread is woven into, linking each piece together. These come in two forms: a loose stitch and a tight stitch. They are designed to be interacted with to create a dynamic and thought provoking space.

Exhibition dates:
Abu Dhabi Art: November 15 – 20
NYU Abu Dhabi: November 23 – December 7
Umm Al Emarat Park: December 8 – 18

“In a world of increasing disconnection, our goal is to create a physical reminder of our interconnectedness.”

About the Award
Under the Patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Shamsa bint Hamdan Al Nahyan, The Christo and Jeanne-Claude Award, presented by New York University Abu Dhabi and in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Foundation (ADMAF), has been established to nurture artistic talent in the United Arab Emirates. It is an annual award produced in collaboration with The NYUAD Art Gallery.

The Award is given for the proposal and creation of an artwork that, in the spirit of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work, can be publicly exhibited and enjoyed.
