ART EXHIBITIONS IN DUBAI OLIVIERO RAINALDI AT DIFC AND D3

PRESS RELEASE

 

The first public exhibition in the UAE by a world-renowned Italian sculptor and painter Oliviero Rainaldi is hosted by Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and presents a display of four elegant masterpieces on the lawn encircling The Gate - the iconic building in the heart of the business district.

Rainaldi’s sculptures are on display for six months in the public space of the Financial Centre as part of the DIFC’s newly launched Art Integration Programme, which sees art seamlessly weaved into the fabric of the community, connecting people through creative outdoor living.

The artworks of British artist Tony Cragg - one of the world’s most distinguished sculptors - are showcased in the garden area in front of the iconic Gate.

Rainaldi’s exhibition, The nature of things, features 4 works created from bronze: Human Baptisms (2003), Human Baptisms II (2009), Argonaut (2010) and Fallen (2013).  Two of them are displayed for a week in the Gate Village, where DIFC Art Nights takes place on March 13th. Rainaldi’s exhibition at DIFC is sponsored by Maserati and takes place under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy in Dubai.

Alongside the outdoor exhibition hosted by DIFC, 30 of Rainaldi’s paintings and drawings are showcased from March 14th to March 30th in d3 @ Sconci Art Gallery, the first Italian contemporary gallery in Dubai. The exhibition Examples is a journey through Rainaldi’s artistic growth from 1989 to date and it is held under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy in Dubai.

Rainaldi’s exhibitions in Dubai have been organized by Sabrina Menichetti and Laura Garzia in partnership with Studio Arte 15 - an Art Consulting firm specialized in art advisory and curatorial services.
