The inaugural Manar Abu Dhabi citywide light art exhibition has opened to the public, featuring captivating light artworks across islands, mangroves, and natural landscapes in the capital.
Organized by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, the exhibition, themed “Grounding Light,” explores the concepts of grounding, self-enlightenment, and the reflection of inner selves through light.
Curated by Reem Fadda and Alia Zaal Lootah, the exhibition includes works by over 20 local, regional, and international artists. Installations range from monumental land art, interactive multimedia artworks, and reflections on natural and cosmic phenomena to explorations of Abu Dhabi’s history and modernity.
The exhibition aims to be a platform for self-representation and visitor participation, with additional artworks set to be unveiled in December. Public talks, workshops, and performances are also scheduled to enhance the cultural experience for visitors.
