Travelling Light

The French Institute of the UAE and Etihad Modern Art Gallery are pleased to present Travelling Light, an art exhibition that opened on International Women's Day and brings together the work of seven French artists: Karine Roche, Annabelle Smith Bigno, Bénédicte Gimonnet, Nathalie Guéna, Clara Baudot, Mioara Cherki and Isabelle Riou-Teisseire. They all share the experience of expatriate life in the UAE, past and present. The themeis explored by each with their own individual style and vision. Here the theme of travel and the associated memories are revisited in space and time. The colours, textures and light that infuse these memories are the driving force of this collection of paintings and sculptures, both abstract and figurative.



Etihad Modern Art Gallery (EMAG) is a multi-purpose art space and café in the heart of Abu Dhabi which organises significant art shows and local heritage exhibitions, creating bonds with the international art scene and academic institutions. By inviting international artists to live, teach and create in the UAE they motivate local artists to showcase their work and hosting a wide range of parallel cultural activities like art workshops, poetry nights and music events.
