Efiɛ Gallery presents Shard Song – A major solo exhibition by El Anatsui to launch its new permanent space in the Creative District of Al Quoz, Dubai

Efiɛ Gallery last night launched not only their new permanent Dubai gallery space but also a whole new cultural district – the Al Khayat Art Avenue – the first major expansion of the Al Quoz Creative Zone.

The gallery opened with a major solo exhibition, titled Shard Song, of works from renowned contemporary artist, El Anatsui. Curated by Mae-Ling Lokko, the exhibition presented a series of new wooden sculptures that recall Anatsui’s earlier practice in this medium and its continued evolution, complimented by a range of signature bottle cap works.
