UAE Artist Panel Discussion

Thursday, December 2, 1 p.m.

Corcoran Auditorium

Free

Join Emirati artists Alia Lootah, Jalal Luqman, Dr. Najat Makki and Noor Al Suwaidi as they share their personal experiences contributing to the burgeoning art scene in the United Arab Emirates. In dialogue with the Corcoran’s Andy Grundberg, they will discuss their successes and challenges as artists in the UAE as it becomes an international center of culture.

The artists will also discuss the inspirations and Emirati proverbs behind the pieces they created as part of a larger collection, which was commissioned by the UAE Embassy in Washington DC, in celebration of the 39th Annual National Day of the United Arab Emirates.  These artists and their works represent the energy, openness, and creativity radiating through the UAE arts community; and we invite you to join us!
