Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hosts Anish Kapoor exhibition

Pop-up exhibition space launched in collaboration with Galleria Continua

Burj Al Arab Jumeirah has partnered with international contemporary art gallery Galleria Continua to showcase new and previously unseen works by Turner prize-winning artist Anish Kapoor.

Located in the first-floor lobby beneath the atrium and running until January, the exhibition allows guests to discover seven pieces from different series that Kapoor has conducted over the years, with the aim of “engaging the audience in a visual and sensorial experience”.

The collaboration progresses the vision of Ermanno Zanini, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah general manager, to further enhance the guest experience at the property by making world-class art accessible through exclusive activations.

Zanini said: “At Burj Al Arab Jumeirah we are innovators of Arabian luxury and design – the building itself is a stunning work of art and a triumph of modern architecture.

“Together with Jumeirah Group, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of service, culinary and design to deliver truly unforgettable moments for our guests.”

Galleria Continua was founded in 1990 by Lorenzo Fiaschi, Mario Cristiani and Maurizio Rigillo, with the intention “to give continuity to contemporary art in a landscape rich with the signs of ancient art”.
