Artistic Tributes Extended: Applications for Burj Rashid Exhibition Open Until April 30th

Calling all Emirati and UAE-based creatives! Dubai Culture has announced an extension for applications to participate in the highly anticipated Burj Rashid exhibition. The new deadline is set for April 30th, 2024, giving artists, designers, and architects additional time to craft their submissions inspired by the iconic skyscraper.

Organized in collaboration with the Dubai World Trade Centre, the exhibition aims to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Burj Rashid, a symbol of Dubai's remarkable journey of urban development and unwavering ambition. This architectural marvel, once the tallest building in the region, continues to hold a significant place in the emirate's story. Its image proudly adorns the AED 100 banknote, a testament to Dubai's audacious growth and aspirations.

The exhibition seeks a diverse range of artistic interpretations that capture the essence of the Burj Rashid. Submissions can be from various artistic disciplines, including visual arts, digital art, literary works, and design. The platform is open to both individuals and collaborative groups, with the selected works displayed at the exhibition supported by the renowned Sikka Art and Design Fair.

The extended deadline provides a valuable opportunity for creatives to delve deeper into the multifaceted significance of the Burj Rashid. The tower stands not only as a testament to Dubai's architectural prowess but also as a symbol of the visionary leadership of the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum. His foresight transformed a once-remote location into a thriving hub for trade and business, solidifying Dubai's position as a global center.

Dubai Culture encourages all interested artists to take advantage of the extended timeframe and submit their applications. This exhibition offers a unique platform to showcase their talent and contribute to a compelling narrative that celebrates the Burj Rashid's legacy and Dubai's inspiring story of growth.
