Total Arts at the Courtyard
Image of Self
A group show selected by Fereydoun Ave which includes representations by artists, photographers, writers, curators, philosophers and musicians drawn, painted, photographed, videographed, sculpted, written or composed. The exhibition was held first in Tehran in November 2016 and has customised for a Dubai audience with a focus on audio, video and text-based art forms.
Established in 1992, Total Arts relocated to The Courtyard after the inauguration of the building in 1998. Total Arts is recognised as a pioneer on the Dubai arts scene, formed to allow for a creative platform at a time when the scene was beginning to first grow. Since then it has established itself as an educational platform, raising awareness of both local and international artistic talent. It continues to foster dialogue between established artists and collectors, as well as emerging artists and students from across the region, particularly Iran and the UAE. The gallery’s current activities include a regular roster of lectures, workshops, film screenings, exhibitions and artists’ talks.
