Abu Dhabi Art has announced the fourth in its series of gallery exhibitions in the capital presenting contemporary artworks for sale. In collaboration with Jeddah's Hafez Gallery, Abu Dhabi Art presents a group exhibition at Warehouse421 in Mina Zayed entitled MNWR (pronounced mun-wur), an Arabic term that denotes the flooding of light in a dark place.
Aligned with this theme, the artworks presented include the artists’ modern interpretations through various media including calligraphy, illustration and installation, among others. The show brings together works focusing on Islamic art by Saudi Arabian artists and those living in the country.
Among the participants are emerging and established artists Rashed Al Shashai, Sara Al Abdali, Ali Chaaban, Khalid Zahid, Nojoud Al Sudairi and Lulwah Al-Homoud. The exhibition opens today and will run until November 4.
“We look forward to collaborating with Hafez Gallery in our extended gallery exhibitions programme in Abu Dhabi. Launched for the first time in March, our pop-up gallery shows, of which this is the fourth and final for 2018, have served to connect gallerists with collectors and art enthusiasts during the year," said Dyala Nusseibeh, Abu Dhabi Art Director.
"Hafez Gallery is a long-standing participant in our flagship November event. In the lead up to November, we are happy to offer them a different platform in the UAE through which to exhibit exciting new works by Saudi and Saudi-based artists they represent, whilst engaging earlier with the community.”
