Artwork from 12 female Emiratis has gone on display at a pop-up exhibition called ‘Self’ in Dubai Design District (d3) to mark Emirati Women’s Day.
Tashkeel’s founder and director, Lateefa bint Maktoum, is one of the 12 artists that will have work showcased at the temporary exhibition, which runs from 28 to 11 August in Building 7 at d3.
The artist will display two pieces from her Limited-Edition series.
Other prominent names exhibiting work at the pop-up gallery include Maitha Demithan, who uses scenography to create portraits; photographer Alla Edris; multidisciplinary artist Ebtisam Abdulaziz; and Dhabiya Al Remeithi, who will exhibit a piece called ‘Refuge’ that explores the journey of birth.
“Emirati Women’s Day is an occasion to celebrate the great women of the UAE and draw attention to the pivotal role they play in society,” said Khadija Al Bastaki, Executive Director of d3.
“d3 has always supported Emirati women active in the creative fields, and our community provides an ideal location to showcase their talents.”
