See: "Unwritten, Unspoken & Told" exhibition featuring 21 artists at Foundry as part of the Dubai Calligraphy Biennale
ArtDayME: Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) is introducing fresh and cutting-edge expressions of contemporary art from both local and international artists in the "Unwritten, Unspoken & Told" exhibition. This is a key feature of the inaugural Dubai Calligraphy Biennale, held under the patronage of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai, until October 31st. As part of this biennale, visitors can explore a total of 19 diverse exhibitions and enjoy various activities scattered across more than three dozen locations throughout Dubai. The exhibition, which includes 35 creative works presented by 21 artists, aims to explore the human relationship with language, examining the human experience in communication, and progressing from language around the self to familial, communal, and spiritual contexts, all in an exploration of other forms of communication and language. The exhibition hosts the kinetic sculpture 'Functional System' by artist Latifa Saeed, in which she unveils the paradoxes inherent in the fading of history and memory. The series of wall sculptures, ‘Door Knocker’, created by artist Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim, encourages viewers to think about the passage of time and the shift to modern communication in the digital age. In his 'Hiding Our Faces Like the Dancing Wind’, Yazan Khalili questions the way images are produced, displayed, and distributed, while practitioner Ruqaya Al Hashimi seeks, through her work 'Sky Full of Stars’, to create an alternative version of herself. Through 'Secrets I Hid in the Sand’, Fatma Al Ali explores the power of words and their ability to convey our thoughts and memories, and artist Dima Abou Zannad presents her series of works, 'Good and Nice to Me' and 'Margin’ to add to the interesting mix.
