Reading: < 1 min

Dubai International Financial Centre has turned into an open-air art gallery with the first-of-its-kind exhibition, the DIFC Sculpture Park. Based on the theme of Harmony of Different Voices, various artists are showcasing 65 works of art, including sculptures and paintings outdoors and indoors. The exhibition will be open to the public until June 30, 2022.

The DIFC Sculpture Park is in accordance with the vision of Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairperson of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, to encourage public art and open-air art galleries in Dubai. Some of these artworks have also taken inspiration from Expo 2020 Dubai, illustrating the cultural diversity and richness of the UAE over the past 50 years.

“Over the years, DIFC has been developed into a vibrant urban destination promoting innovation, harmonious living and sustainability,” Arif Amiri, chief executive of DIFC Authority, said during the park’s inauguration ceremony. “As a part of our commitment to support Dubai’s art and culture vision, we are transforming DIFC into a unique sculpture park that will continue to shape the emirate’s open-air movement whilst attracting international artists to the centre.”

The park is free-to-enter and visitors are welcome to learn about each artwork at their own pace through informative labels with QR codes.

The artworks are presented by galleries in Dubai, including Leila Heller Gallery, Firetti Contemporary and AWC Dubai, as well as by independent artists.
