A Wonderful World Under Construction

GCC @ Sultan Gallery, Mar 10 – Apr 2

10 March 2015

Gulf-focused art collective GCC is bringing a new show to Sultan Gallery, titled A Wonderful World Under Construction and running from March 10 to April 2.

The exhibition is inspired by nation-state branding campaigns that see government bodies “provide branding as an essential public service”, such as the ones of Beirut we saw in Randa Mirza‘s Beirutopia.

The increasingly blurred lines between a state’s efforts to promote tourism and its expensive and constrictive nation-branding campaigns are explored through the launch of a fictional smartphone app that offers branding as an essential public service by the government.
