After a very high standard of submissions, 17 artists have been selected for their response to Tashkeel’s open call for the upcoming exhibition ‘Sustaining Identity.’

Showcasing original works, each piece is an interpretation to the theme, selected for diversity, medium choice, origins and ideas. The exhibition will run until April 30 at Tashkeel, Nad Al Sheba. Taking sustainability as its premise, the exhibition’s themology questions what it is that sustains an artist’s practice. Key works touch on the processes of collecting, archiving and documenting our changing environment and sustaining artistic practice within the context of the UAE—as all artists live.
