Cake & Sprinkles and artistic tinkles…

The Cultural Foundation is all about showcasing the heart and soul of the UAE — sometimes that comes in the form of art, occasionally food — and in some rare, but entirely welcome cases, a mixture of both.

Desert desserts

Sprinkles & Cakes is a limited time pop-up pop-art patisserie serving up cakes, coffee, ice cream and spectating access to some stunning works of awe from 25 UAE-based artists, around a theme based on ‘the love of sweets’. There are also some incredibly fun interactive installations and fun-zones that look just perfect for a family day out.

Sprinkling a little joy on your summer

It’s all available to experience at Abu Dhabi’s Cultural Foundation, behind Qasr Al Hosn until August 31 — as part of a fun-packed schedule of events under the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi’s (DCT Abu Dhabi) ‘Summer Like You Mean It’ campaign.

Through the medium of cake

The inspiration for the gateaux x gallery came straight out of the piping bag of US-based Emirati artist Farah Al Qasimi’s and his engaging exhibition ‘General Behaviour’. Which also just so happens to be on display at the Cultural Foundation.

It’s a collection of photo and video-based exhibits dealing with the subjects of ‘multiculturalism and consumer culture’ seen in the UAE, documented over the period of 2012 to 2021.
