Burj Al Arab Jumeirah has unveiled a new pop-up exhibition space in collaboration with international contemporary art gallery; Galleria Continua.


Located in the first-floor lobby beneath the hotel’s iconic atrium the dedicated area will showcase previously unseen works by British Indian artist, Sir Anish Kapoor CBE.


Sir Anish Kapoor CBE


Running until January 2022, guests can discover seven pieces from different series and research on light, colour and materiality that he has conducted over the years, engaging the audience in a visual and sensorial experience.



They comprise brilliantly coloured discs, magistral alabaster works and mesmerising, mirrored pieces from the Turner prize-winner’s acclaimed Alice collection realised in 2017. Chosen exclusively for the exhibition, each piece conveys a sense of infinity and suspended time.



The collaboration comes as Ermanno Zanini, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah General Manager, realises his vision of further enhancing the hotel’s renowned guest experience by making world-class art accessible through one-of-a-kind activations.



Zanini said: “At Burj Al Arab Jumeirah we are innovators of Arabian luxury and design – the building itself is a stunning work of art and a triumph of modern architecture. Together with Jumeirah Group, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of service, culinary and design to deliver truly unforgettable moments for our guests.” He added: “I believe that art enriches the soul and can create the transformational and intimate experiences that luxury travellers seek today. Through our collaboration with Galleria Continua, we are doing exactly that and giving our guests the chance to discover previously unseen works by an acclaimed international artist.”
