Noura bint Mohammed Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development, opened the Biennale Design Idea, where the Ministry of Graphic Design will exhibit different design styles for 21 days.
The exhibition, organized by the Idea platform, brings together hundreds of creators, designers and institutions from more than 20 countries in one of the most creative events in the country and works to support the cultural and graphic scenes in the country.
"We are pleased with our strategic partnership with Biennale Idea Graphic Design, the first of its kind in the Middle East. This platform brings together many designers and innovators to engage in constructive dialogue that foresees the future of graphic design and encourages the exchange of experiences and best practice in a rapidly changing world and which requires a new innovation and sustainable development of creative and professional skills in order to increase the competitiveness of the industry and boost its growth and prosperity.
Binali is an idea for graphic design, an excellent example of cultural and creative industries supported by the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development, with the aim of contributing to the economic development of the country by encouraging young people to become creative entrepreneurs. "
Salem Al Qassimi, the founder of the design concept, said: "The First Design Biennals provides an overview of the graphic landscape of graphic design and discusses the role of graphic design through the organization of exhibitions and workshops.
The Biennale offers a wide range of ideas in graphic design. This event, helping designers better understand graphic design, will help the region play a role in the discourse of graphic design practice around the world, conveying our ideas, our culture, and our story into this contemporary discourse. "
The exhibition takes place in a building from the seventies of the last century, and commissioned T.ZED's architects to redesign the building as the headquarters of the Ministry of Graphic Design.
The Biennial Theme (Ministry of Graphic Design) was inspired by the innovative government structures of the UAE, such as the State Minister of Happiness and the State Minister for Artificial Intelligence. The Ministry of Graphic Design will be the starting point for continuous dialogue and research in the field of graphic design at the local, regional and international level, as predicted by filmmakers, Prem Krishnamurthy, Emily Smith and Nacim.
