TECTONIC, the inaugural exhibition at The Moving Museum Dubai, will feature twenty-four of the world's most innovative voices in contemporary art, including Jeremy Deller, Ali Banisadr, Michael Rakowitz, The Bruce High Quality Foundation, Eddie Peake, Slavs and Tatars, Ryan Gander, and Liz Magic Laser. Offering a rich, intricate survey of their radical approaches and recent works, TECTONIC will be accompanied by a comprehensive 400 page publication, education and outreach programme, as well as collateral events and temporary exhibits across Dubai, aiming to make a significant impact on the region's cultural community.

TECTONIC brings together a diverse pool of artists working seamlessly across mediums and disciplines, contextualizing their approaches and identifying the new direction of art in a climate of rapid change, capturing the sense of urgency that is redefining contemporary art and laying the groundwork for its future. The approximately 300 multimedia artworks range from installation, performances, sculpture, video, sound, digital and painting will be on show in a 15,000 square foot venue at the DIFC. Working closely with the artists over the past year, The Moving Museum has developed solo presentations for each artist that offers a comprehensive snapshot of their practice as a whole.

The Moving Museum has drawn on a network of international curatorial advisors to assemble the artist shortlist for TECTONIC. Composed of renowned experts from various disciplines, these advisors establish an ongoing source for independent advice from across the globe. In this way, The Moving Museum is led by the spirit of collaborative exchange and the artwork on exhibit reflects the spirit of the time, establishing a platform for artistic voices rather than curatorial opinions.
