    Following the open call to all artists residing in UAE!

    Ramadan is coming up and so is DUCTAC's annual art exhibition Ramadanization, this year in its third edition.

    So, what is so special about Ramadanization?

    This exhibition is all about celebrating the talent and passion within the UAE community.

    The idea is simple. We asked local artists to tell us what Ramadan means to them, and to do so by using the art form of their choosing. Ramadanization will be showcasing the selection of these artworks. Now in its third year and following on the last year's success, DUCTAC is using this occassion to bring the local artists together, provide a platform and exposure for the emerging artists, and encourage passion and cretivity within the community.

    Come by DUCTAC this Ramadan to see the stunning artworks and different artistic visions the artists came up with - you will be amazed!

    Event Type: Art Exhibition, Art Talk, Poetry Reading
    Location: The Gallery of Light

    Have you ever matched poetry with a painting? What emotion strucks you the most when you see a painting, and how can this emotion manifest itself through words?

    Painting and Poetry are like twins. They are both born together in times of both harmony and disturbance. In this interactive exhibition of color and words, you will experience emotions that are alien yet familiar, intimate yet distanced.

    When you walk into the gallery, you will be handed 5 pieces of poetry. Your job is to stick the poetry to the paintings that you think match it the most.

    There is no winner in the game other than self-discovery.
