The Big Picture is now accepting submissions for all UAE residents' visual artists. The exhibition, in its second year edition, is going to be held at Pro Art Gallery located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, between 10 -20 May 2014.

The BIG Picture is an independent art exhibition; self-funded and organized by participating artists. The concept is inspired by a fast and busy society that often magnifies minor issues and gets caught up in the details of a demanding daily schedule, while ignoring the vision and the essence of where we are all heading as collectives or individuals and neglecting the significance of the journey and the overall process we each follow.

The exhibition also is going to exhibit original works for legendary artists such as Picasso, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Roy Liechtenstein, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Bansky. Those remarkable works are going to be curated alongside artworks by more than 30 artists from the United Arab Emirates.

The BIG Picture will be exploring multifaceted artistic creations, featuring paintings, photography, sculpture, digital art, performance art, installation, as well as audio visual arts, by ambitious emerging and published artists.

The BIG Picture demolishes boundaries and gives the artists the freedom to express their interpretation of this message in a simple method, freeing it from art politics, galleries' profitable guidelines or fame-driven market, while emphasizing the importance of it via large pieces. It is an exhibition that does not limit the artists with the commercial factors and allows them to concentrate on art for art's sake.
