The UAE’s Louvre Abu Dhabi is set to open its third season with international exhibition “Abstraction and Calligraphy – Towards a Universal Language,” scheduled to take place from Feb. 17 to June 12. 
The show, sponsored by the German luxury label Montblanc, will explore how 20th century artists established a new visual language by merging text and image, inspired by the earliest forms of mark-making and, particularly, calligraphy. 
To celebrate this practice, the exhibition will feature two well-established contemporary artists: eL Seed from Tunisia and Sanki King from Pakistan.
