Sir Tony Cragg
12 March – 15 September 2017
Having hosted Tony Cragg’s first exhibition in the region, Leila Heller Gallery, based in Alserkal Avenue, is delighted to partner with DIFC to expand its arts initiatives and to provide a platform for international artists to exhibit in the UAE. The sculptures are displayed on the central lawn in front of the DIFC Gate building, a site selected specifically by the artist after his time walking and driving through DIFC. With a career that spans 40 years and having been recently knighted by the queen of England, the project brings one of the most celebrated living British sculptors to the UAE. The sculptures will certainly inspire intrigue and interaction for all who view them.
