Hundred Best Arabic Posters 100/100

Hundred Best Arabic Posters celebrates the diversity of visual cultures by collecting and choosing the best posters from across the Arab world through a biannual competition from the region, for the region and the rest of the world. This exhibition spreads knowledge on graphic design from the Arab region through exhibitions and specialized talks and workshops, and reveals the vibrancy of poster language that is deeply embedded in the culture of the Arab world, beyond just its visuals. Poster language, along with its urgency and loudness, looks a lot like the overwhelming intensity of our maximalist culture, both contemporarily and historically. The winning posters are rewarded with a traveling exhibition that stops in several countries within the Arab world, starting with Abu Dhabi.

Architecture of Loneliness

Co-curated by Warehouse421 and long-term collaborators Gulf Photo Plus, Architecture of Loneliness is a photography exhibition that explores the UAE’s shifting urban landscapes, and how they shape the experience of its inhabitants. The bodies of work selected examine feelings of solitude, shaped by the nation’s city planning, governance, and architecture. The images presented in the exhibition focus on abandoned spaces that once were thriving centres of activity, the development of projects at various stages, and the manifestations of the ideologies that motivate the growth and development of global cities. The exhibition will be accompanied by the publication of a dedicated book cataloguing the artists’ work, together with a collection of reflective essays and two specially commissioned poems.
