The group exhibition “International Connections: The Annual CFAD Faculty Exhibition 2020” features newly created works of the Faculty Members and Professional Staff of the College of Fine Arts and Design (CFAD) from the University of Sharjah.

The participating artists and designers coming from different countries reflect the internationality of the faculty, as well as their commitment to educate an international student body from around the globe in a range of disciplines.

International Connections presents a complex visual dialogue between the varying disciplines of art and design. In addition to recognizing the diversity of CFAD’s research and creative output, this exhibition aims to contextualize the art and design profession within the broader cultural atmosphere of the UAE as a crossroads of cultural and intellectual perspectives.
