NYU Abu Dhabi to recreate Andy Warhol’s The Factory

NYU Abu Dhabi Gallery is set to recreate Andy Warhol’s infamous art studio ‘The Factory’ as part of its first Art History Time Machine party.

The one night event, which will taking place on Tuesday, 2 February will embody the artistic spirit of New York in the 70s.

Nights at The Factory hosted a vibrant community of artists, musicians, actors, and free thinkers whom Warhol called “Superstars” – including stars such Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Madonna, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Truman Capote.

“This one-night event kicks off a series in which we reimagine historical art communities around the world, and reflect on the future of our own developing art communities here in Abu Dhabi,” says Maya Allison, founding director of the Art Gallery at New York University Abu Dhabi, and chief curator at NYU Abu Dhabi.

“The gallery’s public programme aims to bring the university into dialogue with local communities with engaging events that celebrate iconic moments of creativity and cultural development.”
