ABOUT THE EVENT
10.am: Private visit of Generascope - Hexagon.
A collection of 1111 uniquely generated artworks from 11 hand drawn seed images by Jason Seife.
The inspiration for Seife’s work is based around the notion that we can reinvent the past using modern day materials and compositions, allowing the excellence of an old craft to be admired by a younger generation. Seife was inspired by both his own Middle Eastern heritage and the complex artistic practice of Persian rug as well as multidisciplinary artists such as Daniel Arsham, Jose Parla, Takashi Murakami, and Kanye West.
Location : ICD Brookfield place DIFC
