MinD the gap since the last post. Also, mind the pun.
It's been a hectic week in the art world here in Dubai what with Bastakiya Art Fair and Art Dubai gracing our city this past week.
I was hoping to cover the events in detail so I'd have a nice juicy blog update for you...but alas I had a personal thing to deal with and missed the lot. :(
I did, however, make it to the MinD festival at DUCTAC where local artists were exhibiting their wares.
MinD is the first-of-its kind one week festival showcasing artwork produced exclusively by artists living and working in Dubai.
More than 25 artists featured in MinD, exhibiting artworks in the form of video installation, site specific installation, sculpture, photography, painting, performance and more.
During MinD DUCTAC also played host to Video Appart, a non-profit project aimed at providing exposure to, and for, emerging video artists worldwide.
I shot a selection of the work on display. You'll also spot a wall sticker by your truly and, oddly enough, a photo of me that another artist took of me over a year and a half ago while I was strolling around the mall. It's part of his candid 'mall series'.
Hopefully I'll update this post with names of the works and artists soon...
But for now...
