Heads up, art fans! Raffles Dubai (in association with CASI Global New York) is hosting a unique event highlighting the arts and culture of Spain on November 6.
For the first time in the U.A.E., the hotel will present modern and contemporary pieces from notable Spanish artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Sourced from museums and galleries throughout Spain, the pieces will give artists like Juan Muñoz, Miguel Barceló, Francis Picabia, Antonio Saura, Jaume Plensa and Cristina Iglesias a moment in the Middle East spotlight. The artists have, respectively, seen their work displayed in venues like the Guggenheim Bilbao and New York’s MOMA and the Tate Modern in London. (Good to know: We hear the sculptures and paintings are valued between $200,000 and $1.6 million. We're not talking finger-paintings, here!)
The art will be on display in the Raffles Dubai Grand Lobby from November 7 to 13. Additionally, the Miraj Gallery in Dubai is bringing a selection of their unique collection to be part of the exhibit.
A private viewing of the exhibition will be held on November 6 at the Raffles Ballroom, partnered with some of the finest wines from Spain and a live Flamenco performance. We say there's no better way to appreciate fine art!
