Kempinski Hotel Ajman hosts Etihad Modern Art Gallery exhibition
Kempinski Hotel Ajman will host the Etihad Modern Art Gallery exhibition, which is scheduled to occur in the grounds of Kempinski Hotel Ajman from 4 September to 31 December 2017.
The exhibition combines a set of local artists: Petra Kaltenbach, Tala Atrouni, Anabelle Smith Bigno, Jack Lee, Anastasia Yablokova, Anabelle Smith Bigno, Yiannis Roussakis and Ahmed al Hawwary, showcasing Arabic cultural identity through modern and abstract paintings, but also local photographs.
Kempinski Hotel Ajman’s General Manager Christian Ruge welcomed this new collaboration: “We are glad to welcome Etihad Modern Art Gallery to our hotel; both our visions combine a continuous progression of the art scene in UAE, as well as promoting Emirati traditions, culture and art to a wider global audience.” And added: “With the important number of returning guests at our hotel, we are glad to give local artists the opportunity to be featured for our international clientele, always curious to discover the local culture and art.”
Since 2013, Etihad Modern Art Gallery has organised significant art shows and local heritage exhibitions, creating bonds with the international art scene and academic institutions. The owner of Etihad Modern Art Gallery, H.E. Khaled Siddiq Al Mutawaa, envisioned a versatile art space, which encouraged the promotion, discussion and growing appreciation of the burgeoning Emirati art scene.
