The exhibition narrative plays closely into the journey Dubai has taken over the past decade.
La Galerie Nationale in Al Quoz, Dubai, is holding a show from March 17 – April 27 entitled Art Pulse to coincide with Art Week 2015. The show will feature both design objects and works on canvas from a selection of globally renowned artists including Ron Arad, Damien Hirst (art pictured), Jean Prouve and Andy Warhol.
The exhibition narrative plays closely into the journey Dubai has taken over the past decade, carving out a niche as both a platform for Middle Eastern art, and increasingly, a meeting place between East and West for international collectors. Highlights include ‘Skull on Spin’; an oil on paper Diptych by Damien Hirst, a ‘lobster’ print by Andy Warhol and a ‘Big Easy’ thermo form armchair by Ron Arad.
Guillaume Cuiry, Gallery Director says: “We wanted to produce a show that moves us beyond cliché and rebels against Western perception. We hope Art Pulse will appeal to serious investors and design enthusiasts alike.”
