The five-star hotel will be showcasing local talent and culture on the occasion of the 49th UAE National Day.
The Abu Dhabi EDITION presents a cultural art celebration on the occasion of the 49th UAE National Day. A unique pop up, from Friday 27 November to Saturday 5 December, The Abu Dhabi EDITION UAE National Day Gallery, will showcase impressive pieces and live painting by local artists, alongside the contemporary hotel’s very own curated art collection.
The waterfront property will welcome guests and visitors to freely visit works throughout the week from artists; Budour Al Ameri, Salama Al Nuaimi, Khaled Al Jabri, Jeramie Christian, Leila Marie and Sultan Al Hashimi.
Architecturally inspired, Emirati Budour Al Ameri is set to display six paintings, as well as the live painting of a bespoke EDITION one-of-a-kind piece. Salama Al Nuaimi, an Emirati interdisciplinary artist, is set to display a calming, colourful, light-hearted yet meaningful illustration, curated through digital media. UAE native, Khaled Al Jabri will bring his signature cartoon style with two of his latest comic pieces, whilst Jeramie Christian represents his passion for photography, capturing details, emotions and memories to be shared.
Sudanese Leila Marie explores sentimental nostalgia in the context of growing up in the UAE, showing a custom patriotic golden coin sculpture, featuring Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Arabian calligraphy and a poem written by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum dedicated to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. Completing the line-up, Emirati Sultan Al Hashimi emanates good vibes and energy through captivating street art, inspired by a time when the world was filled with imagination and wonder.
Curated in partnership with iAM Studio Abu Dhabi, art and culture enthusiasts can also expect exclusive Wilfred Thesiger photography. Heritage imagery of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan taken hunting in the Al Khatam sands, near Jebel Hafeet between 20 December 1948 and 27 January 1949 will start the journey.
An extension of the hotel’s authentic design ethos, the visual display is set to enchant guests on the occasion of UAE National Day.
