We attended the VIP opening of Abu Dhabi Art in Manarat Al Saadiyat – which means ‘the place of Enlightenment’. There were the many galleries showcasing art from established and upcoming artists from all over the world, as well as live performance art. The great diversity of Art at the fair, from light installations, to laser cut sculptures, from traditional art to modern statement pieces was a feast for the eyes.
We also took the opportunity to look at the pieces in the Emirati Expressions IV exhibition. These had the biggest impact on us. This exhibition provides a platform for Emirati artists to express their artistic and cultural expressions. This year the exhibition focused on a generation of artists who look at form and use whilst bridging the gap between various disciplines in the visual and applied arts. All in all, an inspiring evening in Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi Art runs until November 21 2015.
Emirati Expressions IV runs until March 31 2016.
