Avoca – Avocado

Avoca – Avocado is designer Georges Mohasseb’s first exhibition in Dubai. Known for his experimental approach to materials and textures, he seeks to find balance between materiality and immateriality. The results are timeless, masterly crafted designs with complex expressions that offer multisensory experiences due to their colours, shapes, textures, and even smells. In Avoca-Avocado, Georges finds inspiration from the form of the fruit and returns to natural and organic forms.

Dream Factory

Art Sawa presents a second exhibition during Art Week, a solo show of recent work by Tunisian artist Rym Karoui. "I always have fun, in the eternal dream factory, my life" says Karoui, who’s works are characterised by a vibrant palette and playfulness. Her artworks reveal a crazy circus, a world filled with movement, spontaneity, optimism and laughter.


Since 2008 Art Sawa has been an important art platform in Dubai, presenting works by regional artists to local and international audiences. Art Sawa is dedicated to the awareness and promotion of contemporary art from the Middle East, North Africa and neighbouring countries.
