With Art Week Dubai around the corner the College of Arts and Creative Enterprises (CACE) Zayed University is proud to invite you to Future Perfect Future, a pop-up project curated by Walter Willems at Alserkal Avenue.

In the exhibition Future Perfect Future, CACE is featuring work by distinguished alumni Lateefa bint Maktoum and Zeinab Al Hashemi and recent alumni Al Anood Al Obaidly and Hessa Al Ajmani. As the culture within the Emirates evolves, these CACE alumni are contemplating their cultural heritage and social engagement in a rapidly changing country with grand ambitions. The works in the exhibition reflect their journey and show an insight into their universe.

About the College of Arts and Creative Enterprises (CACE):
The College of Arts and Creative Enterprises aims to develop graduates who are leaders and innovators in the field of art and design practice and will contribute significantly to the cultural fabric of the UAE. Our intensive and rigorous art, design, new media and exhibition programmes are practice based and industry-engaged. Our faculty utilises the latest teaching methodologies, underpinned by cutting-edge technology and an innovative learning environment, to inspire a new generation of creative thinkers. Our graduates are the new up and coming artists, designers, gallery curators, educators, art policy makers and arts administrators, and it is through our graduates that we aspire to foster and build a vibrant art and design community in the UAE and abroad. Art and design are major contributors to a nation’s creative economy and in the establishment of a global identity, they are a country’s greatest export.
