The Third Line
EVERYTHING MUST GO
The Third Line is proud to present the first solo exhibition by Sophia Al-Maria in the UAE. The exhibition EVERYTHING MUST GO is an iteration of Black Friday – Sophia’s solo exhibition at The Whitney Museum of American Art in 2016 – and takes its name from a new series of work. The exhibition creates an immersive experience, capturing the chaotic, almost apocalyptic act of consuming. The viewer is invited to experience illusions of order in underlying confusion and pandemonium.
The Third Line is a Dubai-based art gallery that represents contemporary Middle Eastern artists locally, regionally and internationally and hosts non-profit, alternative programmes to increase interest and dialogue in the region. The Third Line’s book wing Works on Paper publishes books by associated artists from the region.
