🌙 #AfterHours | @alserkalavenue kicks off the season with late-night openings beginning September 30. Among the featured artists will be #FarahAlQasami at The Third Line, whose third solo exhibition, ‘Arrival,’ will open Alserkal’s after-hours series. The show premieres Al Qasimi’s first feature-length film; a 40 minute horror-comedy titled Um Al Naar (Mother of Fire). In it, a fictional Reality TV network has produced a segment on Um Al Naar, a Ras Al Khaimah-based Jinn. Um Al Naar narrates the region’s changes from its occupation by Portuguese and British naval forces to its current adoption of a national identity based around tolerance and a drive to generate culture. She pays close attention to these changes in their day-to-day iterations: the gendered pastimes of the country’s youth, waning trust in traditional forms of spirituality and medicine, and the loss of history in an urgent bid for novelty. Throughout, the artist’s work invokes language of #horrorcinema in order to reveal a new body of work revolving around #jinn folklore in the #UnitedArabEmirates. __ 🌸 Detail of ‘Arrival’ by @frequentlyaskedquestion, opening September 30 at @thethirdlinedxb.
Art | ‘Unreal. Unseen. Untouched’ at @1x1artgallery marks UAE-based artist Alaa Edris' first solo exhibition. Acting as an anthropologist, cartographer, and sci-fi voyager, the artist contends with dominant issues from the field of Arab artistic research, including the construction of gender, the relationship between tradition and progress, and language as a medium to identify, shape and articulate a culture. . Dates | 19 September - 31 October 2019 Location | 1x1 Gallery (Warehouse 10)

خذ أحلامك على محمل الجد. Take your dreams seriously.
There was this door that has never been opened and once it did, I took my chance to look what’s inside. There I stared, admiring the view. But never took a chance to put my step in. I didn’t dare to do so. Done admiring, I left the scene and moved on with a little hope the door would open again once more so that I can walk around this time; Sadly it never did. . . Do you have that door in your life? That particular one you’ve been waiting so long to open? Be brave to step in once its open my friend. Don’t be like me :) . . #alserkalavenue #dubai #dubaiview

Met amazing visual artist and ethnographer Rajyashri Goody @rajgoody. Grounded in the principles of visual anthropology, her research interests span caste and class structure and interpretations of hierarchical patterns in societies. http://www.rajyashrigoody.com Ishara Art Foundation @isharaartfoundation Independent, non-profit contemporary art space centered on South Asia in Alserkal Avenue @alserkalavenue.
