Abu Dhabi’s Warehouse421 unveils new season of events and exhibitions

Cool creative hub Warehouse421 has unveiled a new season of events for 2020.

The Winter Programme, running until March, is once again packed with a host of exhibitions, events, workshops and more.

From January 14 to February 16, the exhibition How to Maneuver: Shape-shifting texts and other publishing tactics will showcase the work of 40 artists, exploring publishing and cultural production.

A host of new workshops are also set to be launched, to allow you to learn a range of skills and disciplines directly from artists.

Classes being held throughout the season include stamp printing, zine-making, book-binding, crochet jewellery making, sewing and garment making, embroidery and more.

Some specialist workshops will also be held a collaboration with Goethe-Institut for Site Specificity and the Director’s Eye, facilitated by award-winning director and producer, Stephan Koplowitz and another two-part workshop discussing the history of embroidery with UAE-based artist Fatima Uzdenova and a three-part workshop with Egyptian fashion designer, Engy Mahdy, on the process of creating garments.

In March 7, the new exhibition The Cup and the Saucer will also open exploring individualism as part of the self and wider society.

The Arabic book club will also return as well as film screenings from Cinema Akil and Goethe-Institut.

“At Warehouse421, we have sought to develop an engaging and immersive series of public programing and exhibitions that work to bolster the emergent creative community in the UAE and the region,” said Faisal Al Hassan, manager of Warehouse421.

“Over the course of the next three months, we aim to emphasize the wide range of arts and design present in the UAE and the Middle East, in order to support the suffusion of creative practices, bringing art closer to the community and cultivating its positive impact on all of us.”
