Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai
7 March – 8 June, 2019
Dubai, United Arab Emirates | February 13, 2019 – Jameel Arts Centre, one of the first major contemporary arts institutions in Dubai, today announces its March programme: three new solo shows, by Hemali Bhuta, Farah Al Qasimi and the duo of Seher Shah and Randhir Singh, will join the existing, critically-lauded group exhibition ‘Crude’, and other, major site-specific installations. The new Artist’s Rooms open to the public on Thursday March 7, and run through until June 8, 2019; a public programme of talks, workshops and tours for all ages, devised by the artists with Art Jameel, accompanies the shows.
Multidisciplinary artist Hemali Bhuta’s work draws on her personal experiences, memories and philosophies, and articulates themes of belonging, security, individuality and change. Taking the Art Jameel Collection work Fold as a starting point, Hemali is creating a multi-sensory room that incorporates textiles, reworked carpets, henna and spices, and that investigates in-between and transitory spaces.
