Abu Dhabi’s vibrant creative and cultural hub Warehouse421, has unveiled details of its upcoming exhibition 100/100. The exhibition will showcase a hundred of the best Arabic posters from a biennial competition that celebrates the work of talented graphic designers from across the Arab world. Every two years, the best entries are selected by a panel of experts and are rewarded with inclusion in a traveling exhibition. Participating Emirati artists include Alia and Maitha Demithan, Aisha Al Muhairi, and Mobius Design Studio. The first stop for this travelling exhibition will be in Abu Dhabi, at Warehouse421 where this year’s winning posters will be on display from 16 November 2018 to 20 January 2019.
Faisal Al Hassan, Manager of Warehouse421, said “We are pleased to welcome two new exhibitions to our space, together with Abu Dhabi Art’s Durub Al Tawaya performing arts program and the return of Cinema Akil. These are complemented by an array of inspiring workshops that enable participants to explore their creativity and develop new skills. Our innovative programming reflects Warehouse421’s ongoing commitment to supporting local and regional creatives by sharing their work with the wider Abu Dhabi community, who can also enjoy rich experiences that foster a lifelong appreciation of art and culture. We look forward to another exciting month ahead!”
Warehouse421 will also exhibit Odysseus, a photography exhibition by New York University Abu Dhabi Professor Tarek Al-Ghoussein. Al-Ghoussein's work explores the boundaries between landscape photography, self-portraiture and performance art. Through his latest series, Al-Ghoussein carries out a comprehensive artistic study of the islands off the coasts of Abu Dhabi, documenting and interacting with found natural habitats and built environments. Odysseus opens on 16 November and will run until 30 November.
Exhibition opens November 16. For more details visit warehouse421.ae
