If you thought art was only in galleries, think again. Inloco Gallery has opened a pop-up space in Al Khayat Avenue, Dubai, and also curated an exhibition in Sharjah’s desert.
Inloco Gallery prides itself on welcoming local and international cutting-edge artists, and showcasing contemporary street art. For its first exhibition, The Useless Palace, it invited ten international artists to draw inspiration from Sharjah’s Mleiha desert landscape.
While visitors cannot visit the desert site, they can see the work on display at Inloco Pop-Up Gallery. For the site-specific exhibition, each artist was assigned a patch and turned it into their own workshop. The exhibition ranges from canvases to sculptures, which were produced for the desert. Plus, cinematographer Chromometrage is behind a documentary on the creative process. The film goes behind-the-scenes, and follows the journey from conceptualisation to creation.
