Twelve Emiratis will have their artwork exhibited at the prestigious Sotheby’s Galleries in London in a first for the Gulf country.

Titled Three Generations, the exhibit will feature established and emerging artists from across the UAE.

Curated by the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation, the artworks include canvas, video, a stainless steel sculpture, paintings and digital art.

The experience is likely to give the artists enormous exposure.

“The artists participating in the 'Three Generations' exhibition reflect a spirit of innovation that is rooted in the desert landscapes of Al Dhafra,” Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Emir’s representative in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi and patron of the exhibition, said.

“Their creations resonate with the cultural heritage that they, as guardians, have inherited."

Sotheby’s Middle East deputy chairman Roxane Zand said: “Sotheby’s is delighted to provide a platform for the first UK show of a selection of works that represents the remarkable talent amongst artists both new and established from the UAE.”

The exhibition will run between July 23 and August 9.

The artists are Mohammed Al Astad, Ebtisam Abdulaziz, Maitha Demithan, Mattar Bin Lahej, Jalal Luqman, Najat Makki, Dana Al Mazrouei, Shamsa Al Omaira, Azza Al Qubaisi, Hamdan Buti Al Shamsi, Karima Al Shomaly and Sumayyah Al Suwaidi.
