Dubai’s design and creative cluster, Dubai Design District (d3) has announced its diverse line up of events for Art Season 2019 that shine the spotlight on the works of regional and international artists.
Organised by Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice chairman of Dubai Culture, this year’s edition of Art Season is hosting activities across various locations in Dubai from March 1 to April 30, 2019.
“d3 is proud to participate in this year’s Art Season with a variety of programming that celebrates creative talent from the UAE and across the world. Our participation reiterates our commitment to supporting events that celebrate creativity and shine the spotlight on local and international talent whilst reinforcing the UAE’s quintessential cultural canvas,” says Khadija Al Bastaki, executive director, d3.
As part of its Art programming, d3 is launching four exhibitions today, March 19, all within the Design Quarter. ‘The UAE’s Ethnic Memory’, being held in Building 6, revisits the transformational era of the UAE during 1960 and 1970 and seeks to familiarise and reacquaint generations new and old with the UAE’s rich culture, history and heritage. The ‘Belonging’ exhibition, being held in the Building 5 Atrium, presents a selection of works by Palestinian artists across different generations from Al Dakhel. Through their distinctly individual style, each artist aims to convey a common message of attachment to their identity and land.
The second iteration of the ‘1000 Vases’ exhibition – following its inaugural success in Paris last year – is taking place in the Building 7 Atrium in d3 in collaboration with Meet my Project and TAM. Mexican painter and craftsman Bernardo Rosendo presents invaluable works that both rescue and promote the Art of Olinalá in his first exhibition in the region, running in Atrium 6.
In addition, the Swarovski Creative Center at d3 launched a fashion-focused exhibition on March 3 titled ‘Design Series: Swarovski in Fashion’, that will be on showcase in Building 7 until March 28. The exhibition features eight international designers from the Swarovski Partnership Programme and their Spring/Summer 2019 collections.
The d3 Art Market will also return for a new edition from March 21-23. The event provides an opportunity for emerging and established artists to showcase and create artworks and sell to the wider creative community and d3 visitors.
