From Pen to Thread: Karim Noureldin’s Immersive Installation for Julius Baer

This exhibition commissioned by Julius Baer features two large, site-specific textile installations based on drawings made by Swiss-Egyptian artist Karim Noureldin and produced in India. Widely recognised and exhibited internationally, Noureldin’s installation continues his investigation into geometric abstractions. Since 2010 Noureldin’s work has been part of the Julius Baer Art Collection, a corporate collection of over 5,000 works of contemporary art focused on artists born or based in Switzerland.

Powerplay: Gallerist, Collector, Curator, Artist - who is the most influential?

The traditional cultural validation path is in shambles while at no time in history there was as much vested interest in the arts. Consider only a few decades ago, when auctions were for the few, no contemporary artwork had ever been sold for more than a million dollars and art historians called the shots when it came to creating meaning and influence. The shifts are rapid, the roles are changing fast. What better place to talk about the art market than at Art Dubai, positioning itself in a region which has become the focus of some of these major transformations and challenges the art world as a whole is facing today. In conversation with Dr. Thomas Girst, Global Head of Cultural Engagement, BMW Group, is curator and co-founder of Art Reoriented, Dr. Sam Bardaouil; Director of Experimenter Gallery Priyanka Raja and artist Chafa Ghaddar.
