Save The Date
Ayyam Gallery Dubai (DIFC) is pleased to announce LOL, the solo show of influential Syrian artist Khaled Takreti.Highlighting Takreti's latest body of work, the exhibition travels to Dubai after a highly successful debut at Ayyam Gallery's Beirut outpost in September 2014, where a new monograph on the artist was simultaneously launched.
LOL demonstrates Takreti's recent innovations in painting through a methodical process that involves multiple stages of executing his compositions.In each work, the artist begins with appropriated or photographic imagery then creates a stencil that serves as the outline of his subjects as he renders an ‘etching’ on the sparse background of untreated canvas.
The new, bilingual monograph on the artist will be available at the DIFC installment of the exhibition.Featuring a catalogue of reproductions spanning two decades of Takreti's oeuvre, the publication also includes essays by critic, editor, and novelist Pascal Amel and Ayyam Gallery artistic director and chief writer Maymanah Farhat.
Date : 14 January - 12 March, 2015
Timings: 14 January (7PM - 9PM)
Venue : Ayyam Gallery, Gate Village 3, DIFC, Dubai.
