Tashkeel today announced the opening of the 14th Made in Tashkeel exhibition, its highly-anticipated annual collection of curated artworks.              

Every year, the Made in Tashkeel exhibition includes work from long-standing members of the Tashkeel art collective, as well as new exhibitors and instructors, artists-in-residence, workshop participants and past exhibitors, presenting an exciting range of new artworks that use a diverse range of materials and media.

Tashkeel Founder and Director, HH Sheikha Lateefa bint Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has again meticulously curated this year’s Made in Tashkeel exhibition, carefully selecting the more than 100 exhibiting artists from the UAE and beyond. Their artworks cover a range of media, including fine art, sculpture, mixed media, jewellery, photography, digital art, and graphic design. Some of the materials used by the artists this year include vegan silk, stainless steel, clay, paper, gold, sand and artificial intelligence.  

The wide range of artists represent Tashkeel’s continuous commitment to nurturing the skills and knowledge, beginning with national Emirati talent, residents of the UAE and further extending its resources to include international creators. Around 20 Emirati artists are featured in this year’s showcase and artists also come from countries including:  Germany, Russia, Japan, Jordan, Egypt, Pakistan, India, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine.
