Opera Gallery Dubai is proud to set an exclusive exhibition by the renowned master Spanish artist Manolo Valdes.

Running from March 15th to April 14th, the solo exhibition is supported by the Spanish embassy and in collaboration with the representatives of Dubai Culture, five of Valdes’s one-of-kind sculpture pieces made with brass and 24 carat gold, are now on display in DIFC’S outdoor space for a period of one full year. Moreover, for the very first time in his career, Valdes has created these monumental art pieces exclusively for Dubai and are now revealed across the exhibition.

 

“It is an honour for us to host the very first exhibition in the Middle East for such an important artist of the contemporary art world. I could not dream of a better artist to help the gallery celebrate its tenth anniversary in Dubai. Displaying monumental sculptures in the DIFC is also our way of thanking the region for its support, and giving back to our community by displaying first class artworks to be enjoyed by all.” says Sylvain Gaillard, Director of Opera Gallery Dubai.

Clearly, giving back to the community is an important initiative to Opera Gallery Dubai, who additionally not only aims to enhance the region’s cultural scene but to draw attention to the rich heritage of the Emirates.
