WAREHOUSE 421 Lest We Forget


WHEN : Feb 04 to Aug 27, 201710:00 AM - 08:00 PM

This exhibition presents a rich exploration of Emirati identity as conveyed through modes of adornment. 

Exploring ‘tangible,’ lasting forms of adornment, including garments, burga, jewelry, weapons and attributes, the exhibition also embraces invisible aspects of adornment: the innate knowledge and skills needed to create evanescent adornment through the application of henna, kohl and fragrance, as well as through grooming and hairstyles. Emirati adornment, in all its complexity and beauty, is revealed through personal examples with insights offered by Emirati people. 

The highly interactive art exhibition welcomes visitor contribution of objects, memories and reflections pertaining to Emirati adornment.
