Vida Downtown Dubai

Empires of Memory by Owais Husain


Owais Husain explores themes of identity, displacement and memory through mixed media using both video and stacked steel trunks. His interactive exhibition explores the evolution of memory through history; how one can be used to shape, manipulate, or distort the other and how this dynamic is influenced by the hierarchies of culture through generations. 



Vida Downtown Dubai is proud to continue to cement its strong support of the art and design community with the continuation of its Art in Vida programme, as the boutique hotel celebrates creativity and individuality. The first ‘urban lifestyle hub’ in the Vida Hotels and Resorts portfolio of Emaar Hospitality Group, Vida Downtown Dubai offers an inspiring lifestyle experience that appeals to the new generation of business executives, entrepreneurs, and leisure travellers.
