Arte Museum: An immersive art exhibition is coming to Dubai Mall

The South Korean show is making its UAE debut.

If you thought Dubai lacks an art scene, we present to you the exciting new opening: Arte Museum. Created by the South Korean company d’strict, the immersive art space will be located on level two of Dubai Mall. Scheduled to open later this year, here’s what to expect from the cool, cutting-edge exhibition. 

In 2020, Arte Museum launched in Jeju, South Korea, and it went on to tour the world. The exhibition reached five million visitors and garnered plenty of fans. Plus, the show won design awards, including the prestigious iF Design Award. 

Arte Museum boasted an art piece called Wave, which drew inspiration from the theme of eternal nature and explored elements, space and time. Judging by the previous shows across the world, we are expecting this to be a visually stunning space. In the original South Korean exhibit, there were multiple rooms with multiple themes, which ranged from beaches to flowers. 

d’strict has posted a teaser trailer on Instagram, which includes dramatic images of a wave crashing. Not only does it look visually realistic, but it also sounds like a gigantic wave. The design company prides itself on creating innovate experiences, which utilise digital media technology. The company aims to be the leader when it comes to digital experiences.  

If you’re after amazing art, there are plenty of places to visit in the UAE. The Abu Dhabi Art Fair returns from 22 to 26 November. Plus, the Sharjah Art Foundation has announced a line-up of exhibitions and screenings. 

Go on, catch a wave.

A sucker for a good story, if you invite Kohinoor to a gallery, comedy night, new restaurant, hiking trip, cycle ride, pool day or just about any activity, she’ll probably say yes – that is if she isn’t busy planning her next adventure.
