FACT first introduced the AD Arts Collective to you all in December last year, when the creative group made its eclectic debut on the Abu Dhabi art scene. Now, after a successful first show at the National Theatre, the group’s second exhibition will take place at The Space for art fans to visit…
Abu Dhabi Arts Collective’s first show at the National Theatre displayed a remarkable array of talent across many mediums, to a large and enthusiastic crowd. Their second show, opening at The Space on March 1, will feature 40 new, never before seen artworks by 32 artists. AD Arts Collective has put together an incredible selection of work, exploring a multitude of themes and styles, including, paintings, collage, mosaics, and photography.
In keeping with the open concept of the collective, the organisers chose not to include a theme, allowing the artists the opportunity to exhibit their new and favourite works of art. As such, the pieces that will be on display at The Space, are as impressive as they are varied. The mission of AD Arts Collective is to establish a living art scene in Abu Dhabi for all artistic disciplines, promoting creativity and talent, and connecting artists and art lovers. The Collective is a not-for-profit arts organisation run by volunteer artists, and hopes to organise art shows around the city, bring together various creative disciplines, promote local-based artists and celebrate the diverse range of cultures in Abu Dhabi, and their intrinsic art practices.
The Space, at TwoFour54 is an incredible and original initiative, known for promoting and helping to celebrate various creative mediums such as arts, film, writing and more. It provides a bright and positive venue for artists to display their work and build a community, so it seems the perfect fit for AD Arts Collective! Pierre Clezac, AD Arts Collective artist and organiser, says: “We are looking forward to this exhibition at The Space, and we expect it to bring us a new audience.”
GO: AD Arts Collective’s brand new selection of artworks will be on view at The Space on the ground floor of the TwoFour54 building, Park Rotana complex, from March 1 to 12.
