Lawrie Shabibi is pleased to present “Each Day an Artist” from 12 May, an exhibition conceived for the holy month of Ramadan.
It is a new way of viewing art during a month when, for 30 days, daily life takes on a new rhythm. Ramadan, as well as being a month of fasting, is a period where we are encouraged to slow down, reflect and reconnect with family, friends and the greater community. It is also a month when the relationship to time becomes overriding: there are strict eating and fasting times, late evening prayers and reduced working hours.
The exhibition will open on 12th May with the work of one artist, and every day a new artist will be added. Over the run of the exhibition, a total of 30 artists will be shown. The list of invited
artists will reflect the personal interests of the directors and other members of the gallery and will be decided by them. They will include artists from our roster as well as artists working with other galleries in Dubai. Many have never exhibited in the gallery or alongside the other artists being shown.
Participating artists include Farhad Ahrarnia, Kamrooz Aram, Zsolt Bodoni, Nick Devereux, Amir H. Fallah, Monika Grabuschnigg, Sherin Guirguis, Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian, Pouran Jinchi, Mohammed Kazem, Amir Khojasteh, Laleh Khorramian, Philip Mueller, Driss Ouadahi, Nathaniel Rackowe, Michael Sailstorfer, plus surprises.
The exhibition sequence will emerge intuitively, an exchange between the various parties involved – artists and other galleries.
The daily additions will be documented on our website and various social media platforms in real time, coming full circle with an exhibition where all the works will be on display.
“Each Day an Artist” is a new type of exhibition, one that is permitted to evolve freely for 30 days reflecting the pace of the month of Ramadan.
