Firetti Contemporary's official inaugural opening show

Venue Firetti Contemporary
Under the Patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Cabinet Member, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, Firetti Contemporary is pleased to present its official Inaugural opening show, Praxis of Change, displaying works by regional artists as well as artists exhibiting for the first time, in the region.
Designed to inspire artistic appreciation and a desire to respond to environmental challenges, the goal of the exhibition is to view art through ecological glasses: How the environment is represented within images and sculptures as well as how the role of humans on Earth is depicted.
There’s a crescendo of interest in both art that is itself in connection with the environment and art that is self-consciously environmental, ultimately drawing attention to anthropogenic global warming. The dialogue between art and our ecological systems surface, where the interconnection of humans and nature can be observed.
The exhibition is a manifesto stating that saving the planet is a collective effort as well as it demands individual responsibility.
The artists taking part in this exhibition include Charbel Samuel Aoun, Catherine Latson, Laura Lappi, Rachel Libeskind, Irvin Pascal, Ghizlane Sahli, Arjan Shehaj, Collin Sekajugo, Eltjon Valle and Fatiha Zemmouri.
