Exhibition: Turning Point at Tashkeel
Turning Point is a new exhibition in Tashkeel opening on 12th March 2014. The exhibition will showcase a series of work by artists that is in progress, "shedding light on the practices and processes that may otherwise be confined to the studio, through a selection of works that are at once experimental, perhaps unplanned and accidental, but which reveal a conceptual rigor".
It is an exhibition that is running alongside The Middle East Emergent Artist Prize, sposnored by Van Cleef & Arpels and Tashkeel in partnership with Design Days Dubai. The winner will be annnnounced on 16th March at the opening of Design Days Dubai.
I am taking part in the exhibition and looking forward to seeing the rest of the work by the other artists. Here's a display of my work, a series of photos I took recently in Al Khazzan Park, which is no longer a park, but an abandoned spot which still has the old water tower, which is one of my favourite landmarks in Dubai.
I will share a detailed write up about this series and highlights from the exhibition in a separate post. In the meantime, if you are in the neighbourhood, please drop by.
Dates: 13 March – 30 April 2014 (Private view 12th March at 7pm)
