Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

I’ve left it to the last minute but there is no way I am miss­ing the ex­cit­ing ex­hi­bi­tion by Ja­panese artist Yayoi Kusama at Shar­jah Art Foun­da­tion. Dot Ob­ses­sions show­cases her sig­na­ture dots and rep­e­ti­tion, and you can even take part in some in­stal­la­tions there. It ends on Jan­uary 9. Mri­nal Shekar, deputy ed­i­tor Hav­ing trav­elled to see my par­ents over the hol­i­days, I missed out on see­ing the lat­est Star Wars film, Rogue One. (I chose fam­ily TV time and cha­rades over sit­ting qui­etly in a dark room for two hours.) Now I’m back, I have a date with Darth Vader. Natalie Long, ed­i­tor Ex­plor­ing more of Dubai as part of my new year’s res­o­lu­tion, an at­trac­tion on my list was Dubai’s But­ter­fly Gar­den. There are thou­sands of different but­ter­flies from around the world that you’ll see as you walk through the nine domes. Some of the big­ger but­ter­flies un­sus­pect­ingly land on you. It’s like hav­ing a liv­ing badge. Mark Setch­field, art ed­i­tor
