Jill Magi: Portable Horizons
1 November 2017 @ 6.30 pm - 9.30 pmFree
Solo exhibition by writer, artist, and NYU Abu Dhabi educator Jill Magi exploring “textility” – repetitive patterning instead of focal point, scene, narrative, background and foreground. It includes paintings, fabric works, experimental embroideries, sculpture, and poetry. Said Magi: “While making this work, I had the Al Fahidi house in mind, with its intense, small rooms that contrast with its wide-open sunlit courtyard”.
After the opening evening the show is open on weekends, Friday and Saturdays only, from noon to 5 pm.
To 25 November.
