IPL mania begins
The most popular cricket tournament in the world, The Indian Premier League, is back with a bang in the UAE and pretty much everywhere will be showing it live including Qube Sports restaurant at The Meydan Hotel, Nad Al Sheba. From September 19 to November 8, catch the entire season live on the venue’s giant four-sided ‘Qube’ projectors and high-definition screens.
Nationhood, citizenship, and identity are recent constructs that, despite fuelling a sense of solidarity among smaller groups, adversely created fractures between various lands and their people. Artist Saba Qizilbash’s several geographical displacements have propelled her to not only question the abstract concept of home, but also inspect how human movement is policed, altered, and restricted. Her recent body of work is an inquiry into human migrations and geopolitics across South Asian landscapes. Her exhibition, Phantom Limbs, is on from 10am Saturday at Unit 10, Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz 1.
