Dubai, 20 May 2015: Jumeirah Creekside Hotel has announced plans to host two art exhibitions by Lara Aboukhaled, a freelance painter from Lebanon, and Chris Nurse, a modern artist from Zimbabwe.
Renowned as an art and lifestyle hotel, Jumeirah Creekside will host both exhibitions throughout the lobby and other public spaces until 18 July 2015.
Lara Aboukhaled’s artwork is inspired by her feelings and observations of the surrounding world; every Monday from 10am - 6.30pm Lara will be available to conduct tours of her work for hotel guests.
Work by Chris Nurse includes a camel created from reclaimed horse shoes. The artist is currently working at one of the royal stables in Dubai.
Jumeirah Creekside Hotel brings together distinctive architectural features, design furniture and a specially commissioned art collection to connect the hotel to the region’s vibrant art and cultural heritage. Providing a renewed perspective on Middle Eastern contemporary art, the artwork is playfully arranged throughout the hotel and its grounds. As a fully integrated part of the hotel environment, these works can be discovered by guests through a series of chance encounters. Comprising 482 works by 51 contemporary artists, the exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, videos, limited edition series and mixed media works.
