Students to showcase innovative art
Dubai, December 12, 2007
Ten artistic students from the American University of Dubai will exhibit innovative art with a creative edge at the avante-garde PMS (making sense) exhibition.
The exhibition will be held from December 18 to 27 at the Red Gallery located at Villa No 833b, Al Wasl Road, Umm Sequim 1 in Dubai.
The PMS (making sense) exhibition is organised by the Senior Project class of the Visual Communication programme at the American University in Dubai and include students Maria Zakharova, Noora Al Ghussain, Deepti Babu, Rana Behairy, Eman Ghanem, Maya Kusybi, Madiha Muzaffar, Mona Navalkar, Deviyani Rao and Afshandokht Solooki.
PMS stands for Questioning Making Sense. Yes, they are very much aware of the name and they chose it precisely for that reason, said an official spokesman.
'P' represents a question mark and emphasises the word 'professional'. As Visual Communicators they are trained to question their work and that of others, on whether it makes sense or not, and to make them professional.
They, in turn, also want the general public to make sense of their art – in other words they are throwing the ball into your court.
“Our inspiration for this exhibition are the expressions, emotions of the pulsating world around us, screened through a sieve that reproduces images in the mind’s eye,” said Maria Zakharova, one of the 10 students.
With a theme titled P.E.R.S.O.N.A.L.I.F.E, she is showcasing 11 masks, each representing a character or person that somehow affected her life during the last couple of years that she has lived in UAE. – TradeArabia News Service
