A photographic installation of traditional Bahraini clothing ‘dressed’ around the existing columns of the National museum. By exploring the triangular structures of a modern space and the shapes of these traditional costumes, the installation places these costumes, usually reserved for more private occasions, in a public setting. Using modern architecture as a means to display the geometric forms within traditional Bahraini dress, the exhibition aims to celebrate Bahraini heritage and it’s progressive vision.

Installation artists:

Melchior de Tinguy, Mahdi Aseeri, Mai Al Moataz, Waleed, Abbas and Eman Ali.

Isa Ashour, Abdullah Faqihi, Budoor Al Shamlan, Kawthar BuMatea, Khaled Almoayed, Khalifa Shaheen, Muneera AlKhalifa, Saeed, Abdullah, Safa Ahmed, Tosin Arowojolu and Wafa Fareed.
