I was at the Al Serkal Avenue for the opening of WILD THINGS. It was a group exhibit participated by a couple of traditional and digital contemporary artists based in the UAE. It is an annual art gathering and now on its 4th year. The exhibition is curated by The Domino, a Dubai-based creative company that works to build platforms for and support the work of active artists in the local community.
My personal thoughts : Its was nice to be able to see an art gathering. But i was honestly bored. I expected something big being in Dubai. The artworks didnt appeal much to me. There were a few of course. But I felt it lacked heart. That's just me. The artworks didnt compelled me to stand infront of it and stare. I dunno.. Probably just me..
I was happy to see different techniques by different artists. I enjoyed checking out their different styles.. My personal favorites of course are Lama Khatib and Kristy Anne Ligones' works..

I guess at the end of the day, our interpretation to art will always vary. Perhaps it depends on how expose we are. I do not say i am an expert when i comes to art. But i must say i've seen quite a few mind-blowing pieces in this life time..
I hope the 5th installation next year will be more interesting..
and please, pour me a glass of champagne will you?
