This is the first UK group exhibition of artists, emerging and established, from the United Arab Emirates.  The show is under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative of the Western Region of Abu Dhabi (known as Al Dhafra in Arabic).

As the name suggests this exhibition shows three generations of Emirati artists and through 12 works by 12 artists provides a snapshot of artistic expression.  It is a visually stimulating exhibition which reflects both past traditions and current and future artistic aspirations.

It deserves your attention and quite honestly I hope that we will start to see some of these artists exhibited more often in London.
