GALLERY 2: FARAH AL QASIMI, COMING UP ROSES
The Third Line is pleased to present Farah Al Qasimi’s exhibition Coming Up Roses as part of its Summer 2016 programming. Exploring ideals of beauty, femininity and desire, the new series of photographs and video develops a performative vocabulary exploring the universal quest for independence, and the unease of women entering adulthood.
GALLERY 1: CONVERSING OVER SAFFRON
Wednesdays - June 15, June 22, June 29 | 9PM - 10PM
For our Summer Programming, which coincides with Ramadan, we have invited WTD Magazine – an architecture and design publication based in Dubai – to curate our first edition of alternative programming at the new gallery space at Alserkal Avenue.
Starting on the evening of June 15th, three gatherings will take place across three weeks, with a different word selected each time for deliberation by an intimate selection of thinkers belonging to varied fields. Three consecutive Wednesdays will see politicians, historians, healers, florists, and more, convening around a dining table and speaking upon the terms Mysticism, Materiality and Void.
The conversations will be spontaneous in format and content, but will be timed for short durations. Each evening will host up to 3-4 speakers and the cycle will start at 9PM sharp, running through an hour of inspired conversations. Throughout, small offerings of food and drinks, using Saffron as an ingredient, will be served to those in attendance.
More details of the event and speakers will be announced every week on our social media. The event is open to the public, and seating is open planned, so no RSVP is required.
June 15 | 9PM - 10PM: MYSTICISM
June 22 | 9PM - 10PM: MATERIALITY
June 29 | 9PM - 10PM: VOID
Also in Gallery 1: The Third Line is presenting works by Abbas Akhavan, Ala Ebtekar, Babak Golkar, Golnaz Fathi, Hayv Kahraman, Laleh Khorramian, Pouran Jinchi, Sara Naim, Slavs and Tatars, and Zineb Sedira, in conversation with this summer's programming.
