East/East-East seeks to initiate an experimental East-arts narrative. The programme is predicated on a belief that this narrative requires a new approach, one which is neither delineated by Western institutions nor remains the sole, privileged domain of Western-focussed curators.
East/East-East champions a less stressful, more organic domain. This is the playful space carved out by shared geopolitical psychologies, the place where these idiosyncrasies are mapped, celebrated and nurtured. Uninterested in formulating responses to values emanating from galactic museums or art brokers, East/East-East will instead thrive off self-reflexive regional dialogues, using such insularity and rapprochement to find alternative approaches to art from the GGC, Levant, Pakistan, India, Singapore, South Korea and Japan.
In collaboration with a number of cultural organisations, arts enthusiasts and curators, East/East-East will investigate these new narratives with a series of exhibitions and initiatives in DUCTAC’s Gallery of Light throughout 2015–2016.
The Message's Art Exhibition
29-30 September 2016
Opening Night: Thursday, September 29 at 7 pm
Step into the translation of thoughts turned-to-canvases by generation Y who are usually deemed self centered and insufferable. The exhibition that we conceived at the DUCTAC Gallery of Light, was an amalgamation of high demand from the prevalent art scene in Dubai and the thought of reaching to a broader set of artists that we were watching closely whom we couldn't wait to showcase because of their undying talent,passion and creativity through paintings, digital art and various other art forms.
Our artists span across a wide range of age,nationalities and beliefs who all come together to express unity while still hinting at their own individual uniqueness and artistry finesse.
