In line with the pioneering vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid to transform Dubai in to city of art and artists, Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group in association with the Dubai Police and artist F.man took a step to transform his vision in to action, converting the iconic Gold Souk in to an open-air museum. The exhibition commenced yesterday will continue till 25th April 2021.
After F.man painted ‘the Transformation Wall’ 120 x 4 meter in Al Warqa, she was invited by Dubai Police to bring her light and vision on the Gold Souk, a historical part of Dubai, also the bustling trading core of Gold, Jewellery, Diamonds and one of the most important gold and diamond centers worldwide.
This is the first exhibition in this epic heritage center. Curated by F.man, 7 Artist from all over the world all based in Dubai. Mariam Ketait from UAE, Fatima Nadia Rehman from Pakistan, Sheikha Salem Al Khayal from UAE, Erik Van der Schaft from The Netherlands, José Toledo Carballo from Mexico, Sylvain Trambley from Canada and F.man from Belgium are all creating other dimensions that open our minds to other possibilities. Between 25 and 30 Artworks will be floating above the heads of all the shoppers so that they get the possibility to dream away and sit down from their intense world.
Tawhid Abdulla, Chairman, Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group said “The open-air exhibition envisaged by Dubai Police and F.man is a classic example of the endless possibilities of art; we are beyond thrilled to see the exquisite art pieces in the heart of Deira Gold Souk and offer this experience to the shoppers and visitors. This would be a novel experience for the tourists and residents to find an art gallery experience in the center of a jewellery shopping destination. Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group is proud to welcome the residents and tourists to the gold souk to enjoy the treat by several artists across the globe”
It’s is a clear signal that Art is going to have a favorable impact on the image of the Gold Souk and upgrade it to an important attractive Landmark. The multicultural population that is trading there, deserves to be surrounded by more beauty.
