Abu Dhabi

Art exhibition

Visit Warehouse421 in Mina Zayed and see Bayn: The In-Between, a group exhibition that explores the transformations that the current generation of artists have witnessed in the UAE and the region. The exhibition seeks to describe and question the threshold found between a starting point and its end, highlighting the state as equally important to the beginning – in this case the history of the UAE – and its end goal: the future.
