Client: Dubai Culture & Arts Authority
Venue: Al Shindagha Historical Neighborhood

Date: January – March 2020

Project Description:

Al Shindagha Doors Exhibition showcases the traditional doors used previously in the old buildings of Al Shindagha. The exhibition is characterized by the traditional architecture of the UAE, which retained its Islamic character and decorations showing the Emirati craftsmen’s talent and creativity. Using raw material such as wood, they were able, despite the harsh conditions surrounding them to transform the wood panels into living art pieces.

Four UAE National Artists took the exhibited doors as inspiration and interpreted them in various mediums:

@saggaf_a / Painting
@ahlamalbannai / Photography
@FatimaAlawadhi / 3D Installation
Artist Jumana Al Sheikh / 3D Installation
