Default Pretty amazing art exhibition

Went to an exhibition at the jamjar at al quoz, just behind the modern bakery, it was brilliant, you should go if you can, here's a few pics, but it really doesn't do it justice - info:

Introducing MY NAME IS ROBOT, the Middle East’s first custom toy show. Robotandspark invited 37 regional artists, designers, typographers, jewellers, artists, sculptors, photographers and leading creatives to customize the 8-inch resin robots and display them at thejamjar Gallery on Thursday February the 19th 2009.

Once the artists had finished, leading photographers from Bareface were asked to photograph the robots in any which way they wanted. These prints will be displayed alongside the robots and all artwork will be auctioned off for the charity START (www.startworld.org)

The exhibition will run from the 19th Feb until the 23rd Feb.
