June 13th to July 31st and September 1st to 22nd. Closed for August.
On June 13th XVA’s much anticipated Summer Collection opens, featuring work from Maitha Bin Demithan, Sameer Reddy, Saba Qizilbash and Nikolai Wiezorek (who all are making their debut at XVA), amongst others. Experience Emirati artist Maitha Bin Demithan’s dreamlike and poignant portraits that are created by using a flat bed scanner. Indian-American Sameer Reddy weaves highly iconic images into fantastical photo-based works that are a nod to his Indo-American heritage, offering commentary on the potent power of religious and mythical symbolism, and on a more personal level, the duality of his own cultural identity. Pakistani Saba Qizilbash’s brilliant paintings will astound viewers with their intricacy of detail, surprising imagery and masterful talent. German Nikolai Wiezorek’s photographs are an insightful visual narrative of Christmastime in Germany, made exotic to the extreme by exhibiting them at XVA during the hot, Arabian summer!
