Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Presents: In The Studio
Guggenheim Abu Dhabi has launched ‘In the Studio’, a new virtual programme which will introduce the public to local Abu Dhabi artists through a series of studio visits and interviews. Each Tuesday for the past four weeks, In the Studio has visited the studios of Abu Dhabi resident artists: Maitha Abdalla, Rand Abdul Jabbar, Hashel Al Lamki and Nasser Al Zayani.
The event will close with a panel discussion bringing together all four artists, with Guggenheim Abu Dhabi curators Sara Bin Safwan and Sasha Kalter-Wasserman, to speak about their work, their interests, and the strengths of the local arts community.
‘In the Studio’ has been created to give artists a fresh platform to showcase their creativity and work, in addition to inspiring conversations around arts and culture.
Aligning with the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi’s mission, ‘In the Studio’ is part of a broader effort to raise awareness of the importance of the arts, foster a deeper understanding of cultural heritage, engage audiences, and implement multidisciplinary programmes that will enrich the local cultural ecosystem.
