Event Details

As part of an ongoing commitment to bolster the region’s vibrant arts ecosystem, Louvre Abu Dhabi and luxury Swiss watchmaking brand Richard Mille today opened the third edition of the Louvre Abu Dhabi Art Here exhibition, which will be on display until 18 February 2024.

Art Here 2023 features the seven sculptures and installations shortlisted for the 2023 Richard Mille Art Prize, with the works addressing this year’s theme of ‘Transparencies’, exploring the dynamics of transparency as well as its material and perceptual significance. Presented for the first time under the museum’s iconic dome, the exhibition delves into the interplay of shadows, liquid reflections, and flashes of permeating sunlight provided by this location.

Curated by independent art curator and advisor Maya El Khalil, Art Here 2023 spotlights the works of artists from across the region: Saudi curator and artist Alaa Tarabzouni, Kuwaiti multidisciplinary artist Farah Behbhani, Emirati painter Hashel Al Lamki, UAE-based Indian artist Nabla Yahya, Saudi visual and performance artist Sarah Brahim, UAE-based Syrian artist siblings Sawsan and Bahar Al Bahar, and Saudi visual and land artist Zahrah Al Ghamdi.
