A CROSS-CULTURAL POINT BETWEEN DUBAI AND PIETRASANTA: A Dubai based Art Gallery primarily involved in promoting modern and contemporary art, operating both locally and on the international art platform. OBLONG gallery’s mission is to create a successful global arena for culture, represented by its headquarters in Dubai and Forte dei Marmi. It is a place of cultural exchange, exhibiting some of the highest quality artworks and giving a platform to artists from the region as well as hosting a strong programme of workshops, educational initiatives and a cross-cultural art exchange program between Dubai and Pietrasanta.
The founders of OBLONG Contemporary Gallery are two entrepreneurial women: Paola Marucci and Emanuela Venturini who have shared a vision and combined their love for art and culture to create a platform for cross-cultural exchange between Dubai (UAE) and Pietrasanta (Italy). The name of the gallery was derived from the ‘oblong’ shape, which comes from three other shapes; a square and a circle. Marucci and Venturini described the shape as a representation of their different backgrounds and characters.
