February 25, 2019 - Dubai UAE

Step into Tashkeel – Al Fahidi  ‘House of Failure', a exhibition of spectacular artworks sparked by taking risks, experimenting, failing and enduring during SIKKA from March 16 until 24.
 
In the arts, failure is often seen as a dirty word. Yet without pushing boundaries, taking risk, and learning from mistakes, practice becomes stagnant. 
 
Failing is part of the creative progress. It ignites development, growth and evolution. Look at science – the concept of failure is a natural part of experimentation. If you want to learn how a process works or develop a new one, science demands that you try, fail, and try again.
 
The House of Failure / Bait Al Qusur examines the fundamental importance of experimentation and risk-taking in art and design practice. Practitioners are invited to contribute ephemera resulting from their own research and experiments that have answered questions, offered discoveries, served as inspiration, and opened new lines of inquiry. These items offer personal insights into confronting the fear of failure, whether failure can be helpful to the creative process, and how failure, either real or imagined, has contributed to current success. 
 
The House of Failure / Bait Al Qusur turns the negative into a positive. It will allow the viewer insight into the breadth and depth of creative enquiry that lurks behind every work by an artist or designer. 
 
Tashkeel Al Fahidi is based in House 10, Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood -  Dubai
