The title of the exhibition and publication refers to the UAE’s second appearance at the biennial in 2011.
It featured three Emirati artists: Reem Al Ghaith, a very young artist whose installation practice speaks to the UAE in the most novel way probable; Abdullah Al Saadi, an incorrigible artist who does not care one way or another if he is in any exhibition as long as he can work in his own precise way; and Sheikha Lateefa bint Maktoum, who has assimilated and deconstructed the transformation of her environs. The artists selected by Kortun represented the UAE through displays of an installation, mixed-media sculpture and photography.
