Art Night

Some forgotten photos from Art Night in DIFC a couple of weeks ago. DIFC's art area is like Alserkal Avenue's glam older sister: slick, upmarket and characteristically Dubai. The late night gallery events here attract a crowd of heel-wearing, Zuma-dining, 'young professional' types, perusing the galleries, sipping the free drinks and surreptitiously hovering around the canapé stations! Here I am playing the part -

OK I may poke fun at Dubai's cultural authenticity but, really, I do I think events like Art Nights are great for he city (and my personal sanity - there are only so many dinners and nights out one can do!). I'm grateful for the increasing opportunities to do something a bit different, with a different crowd - think QUOZhappens, Petcha Kutcha, Fred Perry warehouse party, The Magazine Shop fair etc - and I'm looking forward to more cropping up in the process of Dubai forming its own creative identity!
