Hidd Al Saadiyat hosts leading Emirati and regional artists at ‘ARTitecture’

First art gallery exhibition inspired by the intersection of modern architectural design and contemporary arts

Hidd Al Saadiyat, a newly designed neighborhood encompassing modern living in a natural waterfront setting within Saadiyat Island, is set to host ‘ARTitecture’, its first art gallery exhibition inspired by the intersection of modern architectural design and contemporary arts.

The art exhibition will kick off with an opening ceremony on November 17th, 2015 at Hidd Al Saadiyat show villas, Saddiyat Island from 05:00 pm – 08:00 pm.

Commenting on the occasion, Mahmoud Dandashly, Commercial Director at Saadiyat Development and Investment Company (SDIC) said: “In line with our commitment towards showcasing life as a work of art, Hidd Al Saadiyat is pleased to host ‘ARTitecture’ where the UAE and region’s renowned artists meet and take us on a powerful visual journey in the form of a contemporary residential habitat. This exhibition beautifully unites the artist’s fascinating art pieces with aspects of nature and living.”

“‘ARTitecture’ aims to showcase life as a work of art, and subsequently provide private estate for those inspired by the art of living. It invites audience to explore ways of navigating and determining our relationship with the space, its structure and qualities and how that influences our experience of the art forms presented. Since architectural elements are designed to form spaces that manipulate activities and movement, visual art pieces are created to intervene and interact with the viewer and their surroundings,” Dandashly added.

Leading artists including Khuloud Al Jabri, Mohamed Al Mazroui and Mohamed Aboulnaga will be present to showcase their impressive art at the exhibition. ‘ARTitecture’ will also feature the work of other prominent local and regional artists including Fatima Lootah, Raouf Al Rifai, and Sarwan Baran, Safa Al Rawwas and Zahed Tajuldine. Visual art pieces from the UAE, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco and Egypt will be depicted through various forms including paintings, sculptures, unique furniture and crafts which present a variety of interactions for the viewer to experience.

The art gallery exhibition will continue until 26 November, 2015 (excluding Fridays) where individuals inspired by the art of living can enjoy contemplating inspirational art pieces.
