Warehouse421 presents “Emirati Adornment: Tangible & Intangible”, a Lest We Forget exhibition exploring the Emirati identity as conveyed through modes of adornment. The exhibition investigates “tangible”, lasting forms of adornment, including garments, burga, jewelry, weapons and attributes. It also embraces invisible aspects of adornment: the innate knowledge and skills needed to create evanescent adornment through the application of henna, kohl and fragrance, as well as through grooming and hairstyles. Emirati adornment, in all its complexity and beauty, is revealed through personal examples with insights offered by Emirati people. The highly interactive art exhibition welcomes visitor contribution of objects, memories and reflections pertaining to Emirati adornment.
