ADACH Platform

Arsenale Novissimo, Venice, Italy

7 June - 15th October, 2009

The Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage's (ADACH) Platform for Visual Arts was an official collateral event of the 53rd Venice Arts Biennale, and the first time Abu Dhabi was represented at this prestigious event.

It was designed as a meeting point for discourse and artistic production, and as a survey of the conditions in which contemporary visual art is emerging in Abu Dhabi / UAE today, comprising moving and still images, architectural forms and art works which sought to deconstruct the clichés many people have about the region and its recent developments.

For the ADACH Platform Ahmed Mater presented an engaging, insightful and capitivating interview of his life and work.
