Top art exhibition to visit today in Dubai: Carbon 12

This is where the work of institution-grade artists gets to shine. First opening its doors back in 2008, Carbon 12 was made as a platform for students to display their talents for the world to see, thanks to the six to eight exhibitions it holds every year.

Exhibitions are creative and varied, with stunning work including this year’s The Gloomiest Sunset in the World. If you’re intrigued by how in the world that might look, get down to Carbon 12 for a neo-expressionist trip along the blurred lines of fantasy and reality at Amir Khojaesteh’s solo exhibition.

It’s a satirical homage to classical portraiture by the Iranian artist, with peculiar works evoking an almost dream-like quality. The deceptive illusions and political messages evident in the body of work reveal a twisted sense of humour that will leave you captivated.

When: Open Saturday-Thursday, 11.30pm-7pm
