Colour Bar: Colour, Space and Bits per Pixel

Colour Bar is an exhibition that places in proximity bits of creative minds from the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, channeled together through a showcase that is dedicated to feature time-based media art.

The exhibition seeks to address a number of questions: how is social media changing our art practice and experience? Are artists making art for likes or art they like? Is being in a direct and instant conversation with the audience effecting the work being produced? How different is a gallery audience compared to a cyber-audience?

The artists were invited to reevaluate and reiterate their current practice in a body of work they have previously created, which happens to coexist in the past in both physical and virtual forms.
