It's the end of the week, the perfect timing to escape Dubai for an evening and enjoy Bastakiya, recently renamed al Fahidi Historical District peace. Come down to the XVA Hotel (remember this post?) tonight to discover their new art show: The Infusion of Impossible Things. "Artists Colleen Quigley, Debjani Bhardwaj, and Janet Bellotto indulge the space with site-specific installations, drawings, sculpture, video and mixed-media works that trace the possibilities of the scent and their olfactory inspirations. The artists lure gallery visitors into a space that will weave them into a recollection through the perfumery of artworks and engage them at nose level. The Infusion of Impossible Things brings together a series of artmaking that infuses not only through the scent trails that might exist, but through the impossible remake of a memory that smell instantly perpetuates. The opening of the exhibition will include a musical performance, by the same title, composed and conducted by Barnaby Priest."
