Chasing The Light by Mike Arnold | Running until 5th May 2018

Showcase Gallery and Mestaria are pleased to present a new collection of work by Dubai ­based artist Mike Arnold that will coincide with the 2018 edition of Art Dubai. Chasing The Light will feature large-scale canvases and smaller studies of landmark buildings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, capturing their inner spirit with a focus on reflective light. The Burj Khalifa, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Emirates Towers, and the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque are among the structures that he has included in this exhibition. Due to a deep understanding of the way these buildings were designed in relation to their natural surroundings, Arnold is able to bring a new perspective to his audience.

The Diving Bell & The Butterfly | Running 9th May until 30th June 2018

This Ramadan, Showcase Gallery and Mestaria are pleased to present a group exhibition of original artworks united by systematic techniques. Curated by Anna Seaman, the exhibition will feature artwork from Wissam Shawkat, Sasan Nasernia, Ebtisam Abdulaziz, Afshan Daneshvar, Mariam Abbas, Ahmed Al Faresi, Julia lbbini, Katie Venner-Woodbridge, Jessica Watson-Thorp,  Nathaniel Alapid and Amal Al Gurg. For the occasion of Ramadan, where everyday life becomes more structured around fasting hours and the sun’s natural cycle, the exhibition takes on new relevance. The inherent spirituality in the majority of the works is also especially poignant during the Holy Month.
