To celebrate her appointment as guest curator of The Abraaj Group Art Prize 2014, we invited Nada Raza to compile a selection of her favorite tunes for Art Dubai Blog’s weekly mixtape. In Nada’s own words, this fairly eclectic list includes some Gems. We hope you’ll enjoy them.
Colombian writer, dancer, philosopher, art critic and Global Art Forum_7 contributor, Oscar Guardiola-Rivera, shares ten classics from The Cure, to Pink Floyd– and some great mood-setting tunes to take you to the Latin America of the 1960′s and 70′s.
We decided to go for an Exotica/Tropical mix to go with all the lovely weather we’ve been having – that kind of perfect heat just before it gets unbearable. The sounds range from rare Brazilian jazz to Ghanian highlife, surf classics and obscure Japanese gems to go with that summer heat.
We invited New York-based photographer Amanda Vincelli to Art Dubai this year to capture intimate and fleeting moments during the fair. Combining visually striking aesthetics and a whimsical gaze, Vincelli shares with us the first in a series of carefully-selected images on the Art Dubai blog.
