UAE- 'Khaleej Times' to host Art and Headlines exhibition

(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Khaleej Times, the nation's oldest English newspaper, announced a collaborative art exhibition 'Art and Headlines' at Andakulova Gallery from November 16 to November 22, 2017, in Dubai, UAE.

The exhibition will showcase 12 iconic pages of Khaleej Times from the last four decades -- an intriguing visual interpretation of iconic Khaleej Times front pages by exemplary artists.

The artists will portray their interpretation of the front page in various types of art -- conceptual, functional art, acrylic painting, water colour, conceptual, charcoal painting, graffiti, and mixed mediums.

Speaking about this unique concept, Ravi Raman, Senior Vice-President, Khaleej Times, said: "These are truly special pages both of Khaleej Times and the nation, we are truly pleased to see talented artists create their renditions of it."

The artists at this exhibition come from diverse cultures and nationalities. Through the language of art, each artist can express and share their uniqueness with the world. Speaking about this exceptional concept, the artists stated, "Khaleej Times has provided a unique platform to us to display our distinctiveness and imaginations in the form of our varied creations."

Speaking about this unique idea, Vinay Kamat, Editor, Khaleej Times, said, "There is a thin line between news and creativity. News inspires art and art inspires news. Khaleej Times's initiative brings the blur into focus, showcasing the unique contribution of newspapers to art and art's own stamp on newspapers. The influence of news makes art contemporary, contextual and impressionistic."

Natalya Andakulova, owner/founder of the Andakulova Gallery, stated, "Andakulova Gallery has always striven to bring the richness of Central Asian art to art lovers and the general public of this region. We are pleased and honoured to host this unique event in collaboration with Khaleej Times. I think this initiative will go a long way in building bridges between Central Asia and the MENA regions."

The exhibition is support by The Art of Shaving and Canvas Magazine, a premier magazine for art and culture from the Middle East and Arab world.

Asad Raza Khan, International Markets Leader, The Art of Shaving, said: "The Art of shaving is proud to be associated with such a fantastic event. Khaleej Times has been one of the pioneer's in media in UAE and it is nice to see them come together with local artists to celebrate the history and heritage of UAE via headlines and art. UAE has a rich history which many people are still not familiar with and this is an innovative platform for many people to learn more about this wonderful nation and its journey."

The Art and Headlines exhibition will open on November 16 with a gala reception for VIP guests, and will be open to the general public on the 17th.
