DUBAI: World Photography Exhibition

DESCRIBED by Lens Culture as “the latest – and perhaps most ambitious – international photography showcase to step onto the world stage”, the Dubai Photo Exhibition: Global Perspectives was presented under the Patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and staged in a custom-built museum in the new Dubai Design District (d3).

Alasdair Foster was commissioned by the Sheikh’s agents to curate the Australian exhibition. This was arranged under four themes – The Land, The Nation, The Home and The Past – the images reflected shifting attitudes and evolving artistic styles spanning seven decades.

“The Australian section shines for its cohesive curation by Alasdair Foster.”
Blouin Art Info magazine

The artists exhibited in the Australian Gallery were: Marian Drew, Murray Fredericks, Janina Green, Frank Hurley, David Moore, Trent Parke, Alexia Sinclair and Anne Zahalka

“Highlight of the vast Dubai Photo Exhibition is the Australia section.”
Gareth Harris – editor at large for The Art Newspaper, London
