Through a series of contemporary art exhibitions and installation works, and during one evening, the activities of the new art season began at Alserkal Avenue in Dubai, with 12 exhibitions inside the art galleries in addition to installation works in the open air.
The exhibitions varied between sculpture, drawing, video art and photography, without missing the artworks composed of irreplaceable symbols. The founder of "Al Serkal" "Abdel Moneim Al Serkal" stated that after 10 years of launching, they have succeeded in communicating with artists, and that the Foundation offers public programs and hosts artists. It also organizes 3 courses each year, in addition to courses whose mission is to provide support for artistic research.
Among the participants in the exhibitions is the Emirati artist "Azza Al Qubaisi", whose works are presented under the title "Between the Lines of the Sand Dunes", whose sculptures embody many themes, such as the sculpture that takes the shape of a heart that can be moved and symbolizes unstable and changing love. Likewise, the Emirati artist "Sarah Al Muhairi", whose works are presented under the title "When the Earth Was", the colors in her paintings seem to be in motion, as they embody moments that cannot be repeated.
The exhibitions also include the first solo exhibition of Iraqi-American artist Michael Rakowitz, who presents his years-long project that focuses on threatened and destroyed cultural heritage. Also, artworks consisting of non-replaceable symbols were displayed in the "A4" space, as 12 new works were presented, discussing various topics.
also presented in Alserkal a group of outdoor installation works, including the work of "The Tree" by the Belgian artist "Anno Rivera", which he made of stainless steel in an attempt to link art with nature.
