View Arabic Version

Emotions define human strength but more precisely they are subjective to internal experiences which involves the mental state, in addition to the physiological state including the physical sensations or feelings in one’s self.

Human interaction creates the opportunity of expressing emotions through body language or verbally which allows us to understand the feelings of others.

This year’s Noon Art Award will showcase these very emotions through art in line with the initiative of Year of Zayed. The artworks at the exhibition will reflect the impact and values that Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (may God have mercy upon him) displayed throughout his life.
