Dubai art gallery to begin summer exhibit

Works by Picasso and Miro will be joined by summer-inspired contemporary pieces at Opera Gallery.

Summer in the UAE usually means two options: run, or hide.

But a Dubai art gallery is doing quite the opposite, embracing the stifling heat with a Summer Mix exhibition.

Opera Gallery is featuring a number of bright and colourful art pieces from a range of contemporary artists for the sweltering season, placing them alongside the gallery’s staple of classic works.

In other words, expect to see some vibrant unfamiliar pieces next to iconic works by Picasso, Chagall and Miro. It's certainly going to be a unique and unusual mix. 

The exhibit will run the length of summer from June to August, and if you ask us, enjoying the air con of an art gallery is far more appealing than another mall trip.

Here are some of the artworks that will be on show, both new and old.
