For Art Dubai 2016, Leila Heller Gallery marks its new gallery in Dubai’s Alserkal Avenue by presenting works by two leading contemporary Arab artists—Ahmed Alsoudani and Moataz Nasr. Combining photography, installation, and sculpture, the booth brings the creative genius of these two artists into visual dialogue. The booth will be anchored by two bronze sculptures by Alsoudani, marking his recent foray into the genre. Accompanying those will be wall sculptures in which Nasr reinvents the calligraphic tradition using ordinary materials like neon and matches. While deeply rooted in Arab iconography and history, Alsoudani and Nasr’s art creates a universal visual language speaking to a broader timeless, humanistic condition.
