Behind the Veil
behind the veilBehind the Veil is a visual study of the women of Arabia, a seminal photographic oeuvre by the ‘grande dame’ of photography, Eve Arnold. Through a close relationship with Sheikha Sana Bint Mana Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the niece of the Ruler of Dubai, Eve Arnold was granted unprecedented access to photograph the Sheikha in her harem.  This trusting connection to Sheikha Sana would result in Arnold’s acclaimed 1971 photographs of the wedding celebrations of her daughter, Sheikha Alia, to the Crown Prince of Dubai, HRH Maktoum bin Rashid.  The wedding lasted three weeks and during this period Arnold covered the commemorative camel race between Sheikh Zaid’s Abu Dhabi camels and Sheikh Rashid’s rival camels from Dubai, the wedding preparations, the guests and the Royal family as they prepare for this momentous occasion.

Museums
Mona Hatoum: Turbulence
mona hatoumThe exhibition Mona Hatoum: Turbulence brings to the forefront the diversity of Mona Hatoum’s work over the last 30 years. Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, the exhibition’s premise builds on the artist’s topical work Turbulence (2012), a 4 x 4 metre square composed of thousands of glass marbles laid directly onto the floor. Placed exactly at the centre of the exhibition, this installation lies at the heart of a linear but non-chronological trajectory whereby a number of unexpected juxtapositions echo the complexity through which the artist has managed to challenge, and at times disturb, our experience of the ordinary.
