Sites & Surfaces Workshop

Organised by Warehouse421

This workshop aims to lend a fresh perspective to the creative process, shifting the focus from the end product towards the value of the process itself. The workshop centres on one of the main elements of the process – the material. As an exercise in this endeavor, architect and designer Talin Hazbar leads a tour through the industrial warehouses at Abu Dhabi’s historic Mina Zayed, where participants analyze the relationships between materials at different locations around the site. Participants will examine both natural and industrial materials – and combinations of the two – as well as their properties, such as translucency, fragility, adaptation, resistance, opaqueness, and impermanence.

Warehouse421 is a home-grown arts and design center dedicated to showcasing and nurturing creative production from across the region. Working in collaboration with local, regional and international entities, it seeks to aid the development of the UAE’s creative ecosystem through learning, research and commissions. Committed to support emerging talent from the UAE and the Middle East and South Asia, Warehouse421 takes a collaborative approach in hosting and curating exhibitions, presenting and contextualizing local and regional research and cultural practices in an anti-disciplinary space. The venue hosts a range of public programs and learning opportunities that support creative practices, artistic exchange and stimulate critical discourse.
