What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - ACTIVE -

Opened in Au­gust at a cost of Dhs209 mil­lion, this un­der­ground mar­vel is Fin­land’s lat­est gift to the world of art. A cul­tural venue lo­cated just off Man­ner­heim­intie Av­enue, it fea­tures un­der­ground ex­hi­bi­tion spa­ces, the ren­o­vated 1930s Lasi­palatsi ‘glass palace’, and the lat­ter’s Bio Rex cinema. The cen­tre­piece is 2,200 square me­tres of sub­ter­ranean gallery space topped with a se­ries of domes and sky­lights that now de­fine the square above. The launch ex­hi­bi­tion, which ends

in Jan­uary, is a psy­che­delic dream­scape cre­ated by the Tokyo-based dig­i­tal art col­lec­tive teamLab us­ing 140 pro­jec­tors and a host of com­put­ers.
