I am in LOVE with the art scene in Dubai and the interest they have generated in the past few years. In my last visit, I was lucky to find the Picasso & Moir exhibition in the Annex One in Burj Khalifah. I really enjoyed it! I stayed there for a little over an hour, but I was doing it all slow in purpose because I wanted to take it all in and fully enjoy the art. I also rented the audio guide, which made my visit richer. Photography was allowed and that’s always a major plus for me.
There were works from the early years of Picasso when he did his natural history studies and then moved to various styles and expressions. As he grew, his art grew with him. It was interesting to see a range of his work.
"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction " Picasso.
Alongside the work of Picasso, there were pieces from Joan Miro, where he aimed to unite text and illustrations because he believed there is no distinction between painting and poetry.
