AVANT GALLERY UNVEILS ARTmosphere AT THE FOUR SEASONS DUBAI JUMEIRAH BEACH
Avant Gallery is pleased to present Artmosphere: an exhibition that weaves its way through the sprawling property of the Four Seasons Jumeirah Beach in Dubai. The inaugural project includes contemporary paintings and sculptural installations, situated in interior and exterior spaces.
This unique campaign was created by the gallery’s founder Dmitry Prut, as part of a longstanding ambition to stage a multi-dimensional art exhibition with a luxury hotel group. A result of a hands-on marketing effort and the formulation of a branding vision in partnership with the Four Seasons, one phrase sealed this collaborative project: Collect Your Thoughts. Collect Art.
The project features original paintings by Skyler Grey (who has previously shown at venues in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi), including a diptych produced in collaboration with musician Chris Brown entitled “Konfuzed Kings”. The work is a dual, silkscreen/graffiti image of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. Works by Craig Alan, sculptures by Spar Street and others from within the gallery’s stable will seamlessly integrate with the hotel’s exquisite surroundings inside and out, including an outdoor sculpture garden. Spar Street’s work is internationally recognised, earning commissions from UNESCO, The Global Security Institute (in honour of Ted Turner’s receipt of the 2005 Alan Cranston Peace Award at the United Nations Headquarters in New York), and the UN Women’s Agent of Change Award.
“This project provides a mutually beneficial environment,” Prut explains, “where the hotel property is elevated with a world-class art collection, while the gallery receives exposure to the hotel’s esteemed international clientele. It’s a platform for cultural engagement, where guests are at ease in their interactions with contemporary art.”
All works from Artmosphere are available for purchase. Privately guided tours and viewings of the collection are also available, jointly offered between the hotel Concierge and Avant Gallery’s regional office.
