Tafawut | Running 14th January until 14th March 2019

The exhibition embraces the spirit of tolerance and spiritual acceptance as the official Year Of Tolerance begins across the UAE.

The exhibition features work by five Dubai-based artists, primarily Jessica Watson Thorp whose work endeavours to reveal the important role that religious tolerance plays in the Islamic faith through pieces that are based in deep research and reveal a personal exploration into the mysticism and stories of Islam. 
Michelle Harvey's intricate screen print on paper is based on her photograph of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi: one of the world’s largest mosques. Nathaniel Alapide presents a magazine collage created from multiple images of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi. Hidden in this creation is the Christian sign of the cross, the best-known symbol of Christianity. Ragini Dewan's artwork consists of 108 panels representing the 108 Mala beads used by Hindus and Buddhists for keeping count whilst reciting, chanting or repeating a mantra and Wissam Shawkat’s calligraphic work spells out the word love, the single most powerful universal message of tolerance in the world.
The final work in the show is by the Women of Chitral, a collective of female artisans in Chitral, Pakistan. It consists of 3,000 hand embroidered buttons depicting sets of eyes in the different positions during prayer.
