Malja saw an eventful and entertaining month in March with the launch of the art exhibit, Urban Nest, and the launch of the band, Aalaat.
On Saturday, the 7th of March, Urban Nest was launched at Malja Bahrain. Curated by Bahrain-based Frenchman and photographer Melchior de Tinguy, Urban Nest is the first short exhibit launched at the space, and reflects The Khaleeji Voice, a book that collects all different types of urban artists from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman.
The Khaleeji Voice is a project that started two years ago by Tinguy and writer Quentin de Pimodan. Urban Nest is a showcase of The Khaleeji Voice and the many artists who gave a part of themselves to share with an audience who have never visited the GCC artistic underground.
The exhibit featured works by GCC artists Assil Diab, Eman Ali, Mohamed Alaabar, Mahmood AlShargawi, Mahdi Aseeri, and the man himself, Melchior de Tinguy.
