News Alert: V&A exhibit comes to Dubai
Concrete, a multi-disciplinary space located in the heart of Alserkal Avenue, Dubai will bring While We Wait, a meditative, immersive installation, commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, to Dubai from 6-18 November 2017.
The artwork has been designed by Palestinian architects and designers Elias and Yousef Anastas (AAU ANASTAS). The exhibition will be supported by a curated public programme led by the architects. Prior to its time in Concrete, While We Wait will be shown at the V&A’s Simon Sainsbury Gallery from 16-24 September 2017 as part of the London Design Festival.
“The vision behind Concrete has always been to create a multi-dimensional platform that is ideal for museum-grade exhibitions across the spectrum of art, performance and design. While We Wait inhabits the intersection of contemporary art and design while also being relevant to the diverse audiences in Dubai. We hope that this will be the first of many such collaborations,” says Abdelmonem Bin Eisa Alserkal, founder of Alserkal Avenue.
