• OFF CENTRE / ON STAGE

    Curated by Todd Reisz, the exhibition, which takes over the Jameel’s lobby and is accompanied by a new book, reveals traces of the older city found on photographic slides. A photograph, it has been said, captures more a sliver of time than a framed space. These slides – seen here for the first time – preserve moments from 1976 to 1979, when two architects, Stephen Finch and Mark Harris, traversed the city and its construction sites. Both were affiliated with John R. Harris & Partners, a British architectural firm that at the time was delivering transformation to Dubai. Working closely with Jameel Arts Centre, architect and writer Todd Reisz assembles their photographs into a spatial telling of a recent past that was all about the future.

    Accompanying the exhibition is a new publication that includes an original essay by Reisz and nearly 100 photographs published for the first time. The book is a collaboration between Jameel Arts Centre and Khatt Books, designed by Huda Smitshuijzen AbiFarès, and is available from Art Jameel Shop.

  • AUTUMN/WINTER SEASON AT ART JAMEEL SHOP

    In conjunction with the exhibitions opening at Jameel Arts Centre this fall, Art Jameel Shop has created and curated a special range of products inspired by the artworks on display.

    Known for her large scale, colorful ‘trapunto’ works, Pacita Abad (1946-2004) was a Philippine-American artist whose prolific oeuvre spanned continents and ranged from abstract forms to social realist depictions of everyday life in the U.S.A, the Philippines and elsewhere.

    ‘The Distance from Here’ explores personal responses to and interactions with space and time. This group show explores how our bodies become essential materials through which to navigate the day-to-day spaces we inhabit, and the interconnectedness of the body with space through touch, language, movement, and memory.
