Art and Culture Top Picks for the Summer
It's another scorching summer here in the UAE and art and culture activities has slowed down, but there are still things to do and see. I discuss this with Wael Hattar on our Tea with Culture podcast.
Listen to it here.
We discuss the following:
- Art Print III at Meem Gallery in Dubai, But We Cannot See Them: Tracing a UAE Art Community, 1988-2008 at NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery, and in Sharjah - Collectivity: Objects and Associations in the UAE Art World at Maraya Art a Centre and Vantage Point 5: Architecture and Urban Landscape at Sharjah Art Foundation.
- New film releases across the cineplexes in the UAE this summer, as well film screenings at DIFF365 at VOX Cinemas in Mall of the Emirates, The Scene and Cinema Akil in Dubai, plus Cinema at the Space and Warehouse 421's Summer Camp in Abu Dhabi.
- Live screening of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Improv Theatre at Rove Hotels, both organised by Courtyard Playhouse.
- Music with Katie Thiroux at Q’s Bar and Lounge at the Palazzo Versace Dubai (Tuesday-Saturday) and Flip Side, a new vinyl and cassette shop in Dubai.
