global art forum exhibition } preparing for tomorrow
DAI’s three muskateers mustafa, roberto and fahad handle ‘secretary I’ with care and thought. the d’artagnan of the group, sayed, came in to help the day after. he handles the electicals and it is in his hands whether my videos work or not tomorrow. all for one and one for all, sayed!
Tomorrow is the opening of Art Dubai’s Global Art Forum, held here in Kuwait for the first time. Part of the two-day event is a group exhibition at Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiya’s Amricani Cultural Center in Sharg. For the past four days, in one way or another, the four artists displaying their work, with the help of DAI and the Sultan Gallery staff, have been toiling hard to get this show ready. There are a few small details here and there to iron out but fingers crossed it’ll be done for the opening tomorrow at 2:30 pm. The artists showing their work are Farah Behbehani, Mohammaed Al-Kouh, Amira Behbehani and me.
Also, check out Monira Al Qadiri’s ‘JAYKAR’ video program continuous screening starting 4:00 pm. And lastly, my dear friend Mai Al-Nakib will be one of the speakers on the topic of writing, publishing and technology (Sunday, March 15, 5:15 pm).
