Oblong Contemporary’s winter show inaugurates a new exhibition space just in front of the Ain Dubai with works by four artists honouring the power of change and new beginnings. Abol Atighetchi’s Lost Tribes series, painted in 1991, expresses his admiration for first-nation civilizations from North America and Japan. Yana Rusnak mixes the figurative and the abstract to symbolise the mystery of the earth, sunlight, and holiness. Stefano Bombardieri uses animals as metaphors for themes such as time and its perception, man and the meaning of existence and the experience of pain in Western culture. And Flavio Lucchini took to art after a long career in the fashion editing industry; his artwork documents and honours different attribution of dress-myths in changing times.
To 15 November.
