Venue Carbon 12
Through a range of carefully selected works from artists around the world, the exhibition forms a dialogue between the different practices and materials used by each artist. The works are linked by a common theme: the pool. The pool’s influence throughout these artists’ bodies of work is palpable. Whether intentionally or coincidentally, the depiction of a pool has long stood as a symbol of luxury and leisure, a mark of indulgence.
The Swimming Pool brings together the works of these artists to explore the swimming pool as a theme of exuberance, rest, awakening and more. The show features work by the gallery’s artists Olaf Breuning, Gil Heitor Cortesaõ, and Philip Mueller along with works by emerging and established artists Nazgol Ansarinia, Tamara Al Samerraei, Maria Bußmann, Alexei Izmaylov, and Sultan Al Remeithi.
