ABOUT THE EVENT
Botero’s Larger-than-life exhibition is dedicated to Fernando Botero where beauty and voluptuousness converge in a harmonious dance of form and an exclusive exhibition, showcasing the remarkable works of one of the most renowned artists of our time. Through this collection, we invite you to embark on a journey that transcends cultures, time, and space, exploring the unique connection between Botero’s masterpieces and the vibrant city of Dubai.
Fernando Botero, a Colombian painter and sculptor, possesses a singular artistic vision that has captivated audiences worldwide. With his unmistakable style, he has created a universe where proportions are exaggerated, shapes are inflated, and figures exude a sense of vitality and sensuality. Botero’s works evoke a sense of joy, inviting us to revel in the pleasures of life, while simultaneously prompting us to reflect on deeper social and political issues.
Just like Botero’s art, Dubai is
a place where larger-than-life dreams come true. It is a city that has emerged from the sands of the desert to become a symbol of innovation, progress, and cultural diversity.”
An accomplished contemporary artist, Fernando Botero has always used a variety of medium to illustrate his artistic universe.
Botero’s art celebrates the beauty of abundance, a quality that resonates deeply with the city’s essence. In both the artist’s portrayal of everyday life and his exploration of historical and mythological themes, there is a celebration of life’s richness, whether through the sumptuousness of a fruit bowl or the vitality of a group of musicians.
In Dubai, a city that embodies progress and multiculturalism, his sculptures and paintings prompt us to reflect on the interplay between tradition and modernity, the pursuit of wealth
and the preservation of cultural heritage. Through his unique aesthetic language, Botero encourages us to embrace diversity and embrace the notion that true beauty lies in embracing our differences.
AlSerkal Lates free tour will be preceded by an introduction to brief us with the most important galleries to visit at our will.
