Museum ME the UAE

A brief history of one country, through one hundred objects…  

The UAE is a place of multiple nationalities and cultures, and together the population shares in the history of the place they inhabit. Museum ME the UAE aims to present a snap shot of the UAE and the shared experiences of its community by inviting anyone and everyone to submit an object(s) which relates to the UAE’s history.

One hundred objects will be selected and presented in categories of history, domesticity and art, placing sentimental tokens on the same level as historical artifact, weaving together the personal fragments into a cumulative patchwork tapestry of the UAE’s identity.

Please find attached the press release for the same.

Submit your application to by 1 October 2010.

What to send:
  • Jpeg image of the object being submitted
  • Description of its importance to the UAE in no more than 150 words
  • Measurements in centimeters, height x width x depth
  • Estimate of object’s age

The exhibition will take place at thejamjar from 14 – 21 October 2010.
