From October 19 – January 29, 2012, Manarat Al Saadiyat on Saadiyat Island will play host to the exhibition, ‘Emirati Expressions’. Designed to explore cultural notions of Emirati identity through a series of photographic images, the exhibition has been created under the direction of Stephen Shore and features the work of 10 Emirati artists.
These same Emirati artists whose work is on display have worked together to bring the whole exhibition to life. Involved in the organisation of the entire event, the team has worked together to design everything from the brochure to garnering financial support for the event and being responsible for the design and lighting of the exhibition.
As part of this exhibition a number of workshops will also run giving you the chance to unleash the artist in you. Head on down to Manarat Al Saadiyat on 29 October for a guided tour and the chance to take the day’s inspiration and turn it into your own vision. For more information check out ARTS ABU DHABI
