A bright future unveiled with this Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Exhibition

With the launch set for 2017, there is still some time to go before the much-anticipated Guggenheim Abu Dhabi opens its doors to the public. However, art enthusiasts won’t have to wait long before they get a look at some of the prize works that will be going on display at the museum.

A new exhibition that opened this month has unveiled 19 pieces bound for the new institution’s collection. On display at Manarat Al Saadiyat, Seeing Through Light introduces Guggenheim Abu Dhabi’s curatorial vision and gives viewers an idea of what to expect when it launches in a few years time.

The artwork on display is divided into five sections examining the exhibition’s overall theme of light from various angles, including perceptual, reflected, transcendent, activated and celestial light. The works have been produced by regional and international artists from the 1960’s to the present day.

Seeing Through Light: Selections from the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Collection has been extended and now runs till the 26th March 2015. For more information visit: www.saadiyatculturaldistrict.ae
