Iraqi-Finnish artist Adel Abidin returns to his painterly roots for the first time in six years with Immortals, a solo exhibition running at Lawrie Shabibi in Dubai. The show, which challenges society’s perceptions of Arabic-speaking media, gives visitors the feeling of watching live news on television, with some irony added in.
