For the first time ever in the UAE, Alpha Soul, a company committed to enriching the spirit of Dubai by promoting art and classical music, will host and exhibition comprising over 267 pieces of artwork from renowned artists Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro.

Maravillas con Variaciones- Miro- 1975Art enthusiasts in the UAE are in for a real treat, as the work of two of the world’s most famous artists will be showcased in Dubai starting March 7. Picasso and Miró, Passion and Poetry will run until May 17 at the Burj Khalifa, Annex One, for the public to marvel.

With pieces sourced from a number of private collections around the world, the exhibition will explore the intertwining lives and work of Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró through a series of original lithographs, ceramics and graphics, specifically coordinated to flow through this enchanting narrative. The exhibition will commence with a section titled Creators of Myth and continues on to investigate the works of Picasso and Miro in chronological order with sections titled; Inventors of New Languages, Jugglers of Form, Poets of Colour and Alchemists of Art.

Harlequin With Guitar- Picasso- 1924Exhibition curator, Sergio Gaddi, explains: “The Exhibition’s narrative path crosses figures and themes that characterised the graphic experience of Pablo Picasso and Joan Mirò, linked with a fil rouge which intertwined their lives. “However, the exhibition is not merely a journey which tells a dialectic relationship between history and contemporaneity, but also a dialogue between the signs of tradition lived and interpreted by the artists, and the energies that lighted up their creativity,” Sergio adds.

Mere Children has L`orange-Picasso-1951Alpha Soul, an art and culturedevelopment company based in UAE, is the initiative behind the exhibition. Dilyara Kamenova, Founder of Alpha Soul, says: “Alpha Soul is committed to the development of the art and culture sector in the UAE. Through this mission, we venture to bring exhibitions, performances, and speeches to an audience that may otherwise not have access to such forms of expression.” Alpha Soul is encouraging schools to register for 75-minute private tours and art classes at a cost of AED80. They will take place from 8am to noon Sunday through Thursday.

This is especially true of young minds that are still in the process of being shaped and molded.”
