A New iAM Art Exhibit Puts Extraordinary UAE Artists on The Map. Though the Louvre Abu Dhabi brings new attention to the UAE’s art scene, Abu Dhabi has always nurtured its art scene — and a new art exhibition proves it. 30 January 2019, Abu Dhabi, UAE: Eleven fine arts artists from across the emirate contributed to iAM Extraordinairre, a landmark survey of local talent.
Commenting on the exhibition, Stuart Deeson, General Manager & Area Vice President – Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi said: “We are delighted to be hosting an Emirati art exhibition at 165 Below. One of our goals at Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi is to provide a forum for up and coming local artists while introducing guests to the rich history and culture of the region, expressed through art. The upcoming exhibition will provide these artists with the perfect platform to showcase their talent.”
“Our third exhibit is a tour de force of UAE art and artists,” says Cherry Ali, Co-founder of International Artist Management. “Through the lenses of these remarkably talented artists, the public has an opportunity to glimpse how these inspiring artists are building the UAE’s contemporary art scene. With this exhibition, we hope to help people understand that contemporary art is important both for the development of the UAE’s national people but also for UAE national culture”
The collection will be on display at Andaz Capital Gate Hotel from 27 February through 30 March. It will be unveiled on the evening of 27 February at 7pm in a gala which is free and open to the public. The event will be accompanied by live oud music by emerging musician, Ahmad Mohammed Al Mansoori.
