Press Release

Sean Kelly is delighted to participate in Abu Dhabi Art (Booth A2) for the first time, where we will present the work of British artists Idris Khan and Antony Gormley. Our carefully curated presentation will celebrate and highlight both artist's oeuvres with a selection of new works. Khan's will complement his first major permanent public art commission, The Memorial Monument in Abu Dhabi. This extraordinary new work forms the centerpiece of the city's new Memorial Park and will be a place of strength, pride, unity, power, and reflection. Our presentation at the fair will provide visitors with a deeper connection to Khan's visionary design for The Monument by placing it within the wider context of his artistic practice. A powerful selection of sculpture and works-on-paper by world-renowned artist Antony Gormley will also be on view. Known for investigating the relationship of the human body to space, Gormley's work confronts fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the built environment. For more information on the fair, please visit abudhabiart.ae
