UNITED ARAB EMIRATES---“Geometric shapes have great significance in Islamic art,” Curator Aamna Hussain said on Tuesday. She was speaking at the first day of Built-in—an exhibition featuring the work of 10 artists at Alhamra on The Mall. Hussain said she had put together the work of artists who drew heavily from geometry. Artist Sadia Farooq said her work was about self-exploration and spirituality. The exhibition also features the work of Sarwat Rana, Manisha Jiani, Ghulam Hussain Guddu, Abbas Ali, Moattar Zafar and Sajjad Ali Talpur. It will conclude on June 5. [link]
