The Dreams’ Time Capsule project has been invited by the Maraya Art Centre for a two-days-long presentation at the SIKKA Art Fair in Dubai, during Art Dubai and the Art Week.
This year, the SIKKA Art Fair took place from 13th – 24th March, at the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, in Bur Dubai, the heart of the city.
The DTC project has been available for visitors on March 18th and 19th, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. More than 100 people have shared the space. Among them, about 60 people have contributed to the audio archive recording one of their dreams.
Many thanks to the fantastic staff of the Maraya Art Centre, the curator Alexandra Helen Macgilp, the programme manager Dana Al Sadek, the director Giuseppe Moscatello, all the volunteers who helped during the 8 hours-long events, and the brilliant staff of the Sikka Art Fair. Thanks to everyone for helping us with the installation, the involvement of the public, and the communication of the event. A special thank to Fare Milano, which has supported Eva Frapiccini’s residency at the Maraya Art Centre, in Sharjah.
