“Even when I am making an abstract work, there is a strong narrative in it. The brush marks make it more like writing a diary...it has strong associations with calligraphy.”—#GuggenheimAbuDhabi collection artist Imran Qureshi (@imranqureshiartist) describes his artistic process, and the narrative element to his abstract work, “The Garden Within” (2014). Qureshi describes the image as a dialogue between two trees, each emerging from a corner of the canvas to embrace each other in a dynamic at once romantic and violent. For the viewer, the central point of engagement is the nexus where the trees converge in a large, blood-red spatter. Learn more about the artist’s process, the scope of his practice, and what he’s working on now at guggenheim.org/blogs.
@octobergallery, London, announces its forthcoming exhibition of new works by Rachid Koraïchi. Following Ecstatic Flow held at October Gallery in 2010, this will be the artist’s second solo show with the gallery.
In his new series of work, entitled Les osties bleues - a reference to Sacramental bread - the artist explores our connections to the earth as a source of life. The works are blue and white canvases and wall mounted square ceramics (created by Rachid with specialised atelier in Barcelona.) Koraïchi continues to use a limited palette emphasizing the graphic power of his inscriptions. 🌟 Our recommendation: A must-see exhibition if you're in London this summer. Koraichi is a monument in Contemporary Arab Art, arguably the most famous artist coming out of Algeria today. His beautiful sculptures and drawings can be seen at the British Museum and have been acquired by the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi's committee - but it is in a intimate gallery show setting, such as this one will provide, that his work truly comes alive.

#LouvreAbuDhabi day: described as the museum city floating in the sea, it is built on a 97,000 square metre site on #SaadiyatIsland , a low-lying island 500 metres off the coast of #AbuDhabi .
The Louvre Abu Dhabi is one of three museums on the island. The other two set to be built are the #ZayedNationalMuseum and #GuggenheimAbuDhabi . An underground service tunnel will connect all 3 museums will be over 1km in length and will provide residents/ tourists alike an easy route to visit all three attractions. The museum hopes to emphasize the conservation and heritage of the cultural traditions of the emirate dating back 7,000 years ago.

Here is the result of one of my finest collaboration with amazing and renown iranian artist Laleh Korramian @lalehjan for the launch of her new art-meet-fashion brand @laloonclothing ( check it out at www.laloonstudio.com) and modeling by striking @mbbunny . We were inspired from #parajamov ‘ s unique movie #thecolorofpomegranates , but also inspired by an unknown and poetic dreamy civilization. #scifi#fashion#art#iran#parisphoto#iranianart @guggenheim @parisphotofair #guggenheimabudhabi @momaps1 @artbasel @saatchi_gallery #theatre
It has endured years of delays. The broiling construction site has been the site of horrible abuses, even death. But this weekend finally brings the official opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi: the first and most important component of the most contentious museum project in the world, soon to be followed by a branch of the Guggenheim. The Jean Nouvel designed building, gleaming under the intense Gulf sun, puts history in the service of the state — and challenges every one of our assumptions about art and freedom.
