Venue: Manarat Al Saadiyat, Saadiyat Island – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Emirati Expressions: Realised, the third in the series of Emirati Expressions, showcases newly commissioned artworks by established Emirati artists. The six artists featured in this exhibition are: Abdullah Al Saadi, Ebtisam Abdulaziz, Layla Juma, Mohamed Al Mazrouei, Mohammed Ahmed Ibrahim, and Mohammed Kazem. As some of the leading second-generation artists in the United Arab Emirates, they are recognised for the breadth of their artistic practice and for their part in shaping the contemporary visual art scene in the UAE.
In the course of curatorial research for this exhibition, it was discovered that many of these exceptional artists had unfulfilled projects. Despite the support and recognition that these artists have received over their careers, many had ideas that remained unrealised due to their scale or other logistical considerations. These artists can now display the true extent of their visionary ideas and artistic expertise. Through Emirati Expressions: Realised, multiple proposals for heretofore unrealised artworks will be brought to fruition.
