So to begin with: the Abu Dhabi Art Fair!
I went to the opening night on Wednesday. I am always very impressed by the variety and quality of the art: Basquiat, Louise Bourgeois, Jemimah Patterson, but also Fateh Moudarres and Chafic Abboud... Such a good mix!

I have to admit I was pretty surprised by a few bold pieces of fashion art: a bullet dress, a chastity belt...  I didn't  think the UAE would be able to display such daring pieces. Not so surprised though when I discovered that the Sawa Gallery showing these pieces was partly run by a lovely lebanese lady. Who else than a lebanese woman to be that fearless? Loved it.

It is open until tomorrow so if you are in the UAE, go have a look!
