It is already the 12th edition of Made in Tashkeel where the art community’s skills to create, make and explore are celebrated.
Since the gallery’s opening in 2008, Tashkeel’s various members, artist-in-residents, workshop instructors, participants, exhibitors and clients of Tashkeel’s fine art printing and laser-cutting services have made and acquired a lot of art and design works of various mediums.
In this 12th edition of its annual summer exhibition, about ninety artworks by 42 artists from 22 countries are presented showing the diversity of the UAE artistic practice. The exhibition is open to visitors until August 31, 2022.
Tashkeel’s specialist equipment, artist workspaces and facilities have been used to make various art works presented at the exhibition, demonstrating the importance of access, training, support and investment in fueling the UAE’s creative and cultural industries.
One of the exhibiting artists is Chie Nakano, who is a member of Tashkeel where she continues her artistic practice at Tashkeel–House 10, Al Fahidi. She considers the diversity of Dubai to be an inspiration and continues to capture the beauty of different ethnicities, cultures and beliefs.
Another artist is Richard Crooks. Richard constructs photographic collage and ceramic sculpture collaborating with Sounak Das, a Bangladeshi photographer. The artists are fascinated with the flyovers and brutalist constructions of Dhaka.
Artist Yousra Wahba’s specialty is fluid material. She creates unique metamorphic-shaped sculptures. Using synthetic resin, ink, wood, plexiglass and other materials, she makes artworks that capture the wild aspect of nature reflecting fleeting moments of streaming energy.
Palestinian artist and designer Areen Hassan is a current member at Tashkeel. Her work showcases Islamic art presenting it as a living art endlessly sculpting daily life. The artist’s aim is to go beyond the visual perception of Islamic art to investigate an embodied participatory language through which it is represented.
