For the artists who have had to go through moments of anxiety amid the pandemic – this year’s World Art Dubai (WAD) is the ‘light at the end of a tunnel’.
Four renowned personalities in the industry have curated some of the best works that capture that spirit, from powerful and poignant work on the human mind and soul to the vibrant depictions of the modern woman and transformations. Samar Kamel, one of the curators, shared a preview of what awaits visitors at the fair.
“It has been a tough year, yet I believe artists, as always, took their inner struggles and fears and poured it profusely into their art. Visitors will see a lot of ‘hope’ at World Art Dubai, which brings together multiple nationalities enabling them to learn about various cultures,” said Kamel, an Egyptian whose works will also be at display.
Kamel’s art career has always been directed to examine cultural attitudes towards women, with an aim to break stereotypes.
According to her, while several features could serve as the highlight for this year’s WAD, she said works that Covid-19 brought to life are sure to stand out.
“Art is a means to raise spirits, especially during times of crisis. I believe our brand-new feature ‘Creativity Unmasked’, a wall dedicated to art created during the pandemic, will certainly help viewers connect and interact with their own experiences during Covid-19,” she added.
