A Glimmer of Hope
We are extremely keen to announce the solo exhibition, “A Glimmer of Hope” by the founder of ZeeArts, art activist #ZaahirahMuthy from 15th to 22nd August at ALLIANCE FRANCAISE – DUBAI open for public.
Turning to the history of past pandemics, responding to one evidently shreds the fabrics of society and the economy to an extent that plunges the populace into unprecedented depths of disturbances. Even more so now, as we spend much time building a semblance of recovery amidst the tumults of the Coronavirus, activist artist Zaahirah Muthy falls back on her creativity in an attempt to calm the waters. Hosted by Alliance Française- Dubai ‘The Glimmer of Hope’ is presented as her 6th solo exhibition that stands as a beacon of optimism for the creative community. Take a stroll through the vibrant symphony of colors bearing the elements of Hope, Happiness, and Healing.
As the world gradually reopens itself to a new dawn, Zaahirah revisits her artistic outburst during Dubai’s lockdown through a retrospective creation of 40 artworks documenting the fluctuations of her emotions, contemplations, and psyche during that period. Each work, albeit child-like in rendering, presents a greater depth of conceptual development that is far from childish. “We were all children once, and we still are now whenever we experience the fear of making mistakes.” Travel amidst the array of vibrant colors allows Zaahirah Muthy to reignite that sliver of joy and cultivate the flame of hope to melt away the uncertainties amidst this health crisis.
The artist is graciously supporting كن إنسان an NGO, nestled in Beirut to help those who have been impacted by the recent disaster
