The Future Past by Baber Afzal

Baber Afzal, a Pakistani-born resident of Dubai who works as a fine art photographer, filmmaker, and visual artist, will present an exhibition titled The Future Past in Galley 4. Afzal captures the size and magnificence of his subjects in his larger-than-life photographs, which include breathtaking scenery and buildings like the Burj Khalifa.

Afzal’s work is often startling and bizarre, whether she manipulates light using methods during or after the shot.

Dancers Soul by Stuart Lawson

Stuart Lawson’s Dancers Soul show features mesmerising photos of Bolshoi ballet dancers.

It makes perfect sense to depict dancing via the visual arts. Artists including William Blake, Edward Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse, and Keith Haring were enthralled by the subject because of the clothing, energy, and expressive motions.

Dreams Within Dreams by Debjani Bhardwaj

In Gallery 5, Debjani Bhardwaj, an Indian artist, will present Dreams Within Dreams. It is a solo exhibition of her beautiful and elaborate drawings.

Bhardwaj creates lovely and detailed pictures due to her interest in Middle Eastern folk tales. Moreover, her talent for working with delicate materials like paper and ceramics.

The physicality that Debjani uses in her work, whether cutting, slicing, ripping, or piercing, is evident in the delicate media she works with. Her work is conceals by the precisely designed and performed works, from tiny works to larger scale ones.
