Warehouse 421 relaunches with two exhibitions, new café, shop and library

Warehouse 421 has reopened to the public with a new look.

The creative space has undergone construction and renovation works in the past few months and will reopen with a new shop, café and library nook.

Two exhibitions, that had opened just before the space was closed temporarily to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in March, have also reopened at the venue.

Both The Stonebreakers by curator Murtaza Vali, and The Cup and The Saucer by artist Hashel Al Lamki and curator Munira Al Sayegh, will reopen to the public.

Back in March, curator Manira Al Sayegh said, “The title of the exhibition, The Cup and The Saucer, borrows the metaphorical stance of two objects created for one another, which only exist as separates when they are pulled away from one another by another factor.

“This creation of two into one is very symbolic to Hashel Al Lamki and I. Through our collaboration we explored this sense of two separates coming together to form a unit.

“The exhibition is a culmination of open ended questions that surfaced during our ritualistic Monday meetings that we had.

“The framework of this exhibition is the direct translation of the chaotic order of the meeting of two minds into a single space.”

We look forward to seeing the exhibitions and the new space soon.
