For the Artist
The latest exhibition at Concrete, Alserkal avenue, offers a lot for art enthusiasts to sink their teeth into. On until March 23, Fabric(ated) Fractures features 15 artists of Bangladeshi, South Asian, and Southeast Asian origin. The platform explores â€˜sensitive spacesâ€™â€”spaces that challenge ideas of nation, state, and territory. The exhibition design intervenes in the architecture of Concrete, spanning its height with community- based artworks that are humanist acts of insurgency against rising polarisation in the region (and the rest of the world), and grounding the exhibition in a more porous pre-colonial past through the use of a vernacular mud floor found in many South Asian villages.
Fabric(ated) Fractures is a collaboration between the Samdani Art Foundation and Alserkal at Concrete, Dubai.
Taste of Europe
Take a break from shopping and tuck into carefully prepared French-Mediterranean dishes at Izu Brasserie. Located on the main boulevard in City Walk with views to Downtown Dubai, the relaxed dining space with spacious outdoor seating by Chef Izu Ani offers a great selection of freshly-prepared dishes and signature cocktails. We tried the Diavola pizza, seafood spaghetti and avocado toast and it was all perfectly cooked, tasted extremely fresh and light.
IZU Brasserie and Bakery can be found inside Le BHV Marais in City Walk.
