Inject a serious dose of culture into your weekend with these three diverse Dubai art exhibitions
What: From Fashion to Art
Where: Oblong Gallery, Bluewaters
Why we’re going: Here at Esquire we’re all about slick style and fine art, so Oblong galleries merging of the two makes it a dead cert for our weekend antics. The work comes from iconic Italian artist, Flavio Lucchini, who creates sculpted clothing rendered in bronze resin and steel as well as experimental works from other mediums such as bas-relief, painting and digital art. Très chic
What: Art of Motorcycles Show 2020
Where: Warehouse Four, Al Quoz
Why we’re going: Know more about Harley Davidsons than Honoré Daumier? Fear not – there’s an artistic hope for you yet. This super accessible and impressibly varied exhibition of art and photography uses all things motorcycles as its muse, showcasing interpretations of the two-wheeled vehicle through invited builders, collectors and private owners. Perfect for the motorheads looking to live their weekend in the proverbial fast lane.
What: Between Me and The Stone
Where: Showcase Gallery, Alserkal Avenue
Why we’re going: A Zimbabwe export, Dominic Benhura is considered one of the most important Shona sculptors globally – a fact well backed by over 30 solo exhibitions. Playful yet sophisticated, his work is a striking example of Shona sculpture, which is a medium often carved to express both personal and spiritual beliefs.
