AD Arts Collective returns with a new body of artworks under the title “Caravan, Journey of Art.” Caravan is the Collective’s third show this year and their fifth since they were founded in November 2014. The concept of their new show “Caravan”, embodies the spirit of The Collective’s inclusive celebration of art and serves to signify their purpose; which includes bringing people and art together. Participating in this exhibition will be 28 artists from 16 different countries, displaying 66 artworks. The Collective wishes to bring vibrant artworks from different cultures and influences to Abu Dhabi. They would like to invite artists, art lovers and other curious folk along for a journey into a colourful and enriching world of original art.
With every show, AD Arts Collective seeks to improve upon its past work and strives to find unique and inspiring artworks from around Abu Dhabi. The mission of AD Arts Collective is to establish a living art scene in Abu Dhabi for all artistic disciplines, promoting creativity and talent, and connecting artists and art lovers. The Collective is a not-for-profit arts organization is run by Katharina Moeller and Nizar AlSaleh, who organized Caravan, along with the help of a few volunteer artists. The collective hopes to organize art shows around the city, bring together various artistic disciplines, promote local-based artists and celebrate the diverse range of cultures in Abu Dhabi and their intrinsic art practices. The Collective is very pleased to be working with The Space organization again, after the success of their show last March.
There will be special events taking place during the month long exhibition, which offers artists and the public a chance to interact and truly experience the wealth of talent this city has to offer.
