This event has ended.

Dubai Underground explores contrasts as portrayed by this group of artists, some of which are Emirati (nationals of the United Arab Emirates), and others who represent the city's international complexion, coming from Tanzania, Libya and the UK. Their works reflect the myriad realities coexisting in Dubai, from juxtaposition of the wealthy elite's conspicuous consumption against the hidden plight of the laborers, who are quite literally building the city brick by brick, to the challenges young Emiratis face in defining and retaining their cultural identity when they have become a minority, making up just 15 percent of the city's population.
