My UAE Chronicles: The Guggenheim – The Making of a Museum

on September 7, 2015

February 2010.

The exhibit was organized in a collaboration with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, which brings masterworks from the great collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum to the Middle East for the first time. It is the first exhibition to be organized under the auspices of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Museum.

My colleagues (Monica & Erma) and I decided to check the exhibit after work. The exhibition was held at Emirates Palace, the 7-star hotel in Abu Dhabi.

And because I was an Art Studies graduate and haven’t been anywhere near Europe, this was the closest I got to all of those paintings I have studied back in college. I almost died after seeing the great works of Seurat, Cezanne and Pollock.

Vasily Kandinsky’s Decisive Rose. This was what was posted outside the exhibit.

The following photos are from the exhibit itself which I got from Arts Abu Dhabi website since it was not allowed to take photos inside. You can constantly check this website for more art-related events. 🙂

The planned museum will look like this once it is done.

After appreciating all that beauty, we decided to stay a bit longer at the hotel to also take some photos.

MIRAGE

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
