Work by four UAE artists to be showcased in Kochi (India) as part of Abu Dhabi Art’s international exhibition programmes


Abu Dhabi Art, under the remit of the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, has announced that two exhibitions: Beyond Emerging Artists 2023; and Gateway: Maqam, will be presented for the first time in Kochi, India from 12 July to 15 August 2024.

The upcoming showcase of Beyond Emerging Artists 2023 at Kochi’s Durbar Hall comes after its successful showing at during this year’s Venice Biennale, where works by the BEA programme’s artists Almaha Jaralla, Samo Shalaby, and Latifa Saeed were displayed.

In another first, the Kochi event will mark the inaugural international showing of Maqam, a survey show of works by pioneering UAE artist Hashel Al Lamki, curated by Dr. Venetia Porter for Abu Dhabi Art’s annual Gateway exhibition. 

The exhibitions will travel to Kochi in partnership with Rizq Art Initiative (RAi), a new artistic space in Abu Dhabi overseen by Shafeena Yusuff Ali and Meena Vari. RAi presents artists from the Global South, providing a valuable opportunity for both emerging and established artists from the region to position their practice within the global discourse.
