Founder of the Emirates Fine Art Society and Art Atelier in the Youth Theater and Arts, Dubai, Hassan Sharif will lecture Wednesday evening as part of the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) visiting artist series. 


Sharif’s work was selected to represent the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) during its first national pavilion at the 2009 Venice Biennale and runs the gamut between installation, performance, painting and assemblage. Considered to be the U.A.E.’s first conceptual artist, Sharif has solidified his roles as artist, educator, critic and mentor to contemporary artists in his home and abroad since the 1970s. 

5:30 p.m. Free. DAAP 4400, 2624 Clifton Ave., University of Cincinnati campus, Clifton, 513-556-2095, daap.uc.edu.
