Portrait of a Nation Contemporary Art from the United Arab Emirates. Featuring works from The ADMAF Art Collection

‚Portrait of a Nation‘ offers a glimpse into the creative practices of 50 contemporary artists from the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The visitors are invited to explore the country through the individual perspectives of the participating artists who call it home. The exhibition is divided into seven themed rooms: Nation & Unity, Geography & Nature, Architecture & Urbanism, Portraiture & Identity, Religion & Spirituality, Language & Calligraphy, and Tradition & Heritage. It is accompanied by a programme of workshops, talks, tours and performances.

The exhibition of contemporary Emirati art features works from the collection of the Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Foundation (ADMAF), among the oldest, non-profit cultural organisations in the Arabian Gulf and organiser of the Abu Dhabi Festival. Founded in 1996, ADMAF has pioneered new artistic practices over the last 20 years, seeking to deepen global cross-cultural dialogue and inspire a renewed interest in the creativity of the UAE and the wider Arab region.
