Opening soon: Coming Up Roses by Farah Al Qasimi
Summer art exhibition
Dubai art gallery The Third Line is set to present a new solo exhibition by Emirati artist Farah Al Qasimi. Titled Coming Up Roses, the exhibition features still imagery as well as a video that depicts the social interpretation of what beauty is and the struggles of young girls as they mature into adult women.
While the images underwent detailed set-ups, Qasimi's clever candid-shot style allows for a more relaxed outlook at the social issues plaguing women today including the absolute but at times false, belief in beauty products from coloured contact lenses to skin-whitening creams.
Coming Up Roses by Farah Al Qasimi will run from June 15 until July 16 at The Third Line, Al Serkal Avenue.
