letter from the editor

I TOOK A FLIGHT IN SEPTEMBER, my first in nearly six months. It wasn’t a long journey, but the sheer excitement of experiencing what everybody is calling the new normal sunk in. And yes, I felt safe. According to the latest report of International Air Transport Association (IATA), flights are said to have a much lower COVID-19 transmission rate than buses and trains. As reassuring as that is, it’s important that we continue to be careful, responsible, and thoughtful on our travels. My last overseas trip of this year happened in February, and it was incidentally to the Middle East, specifically the glimmering city of Dubai, where I discovered the art district of Alserkal Avenue (p. 12). With its diverse offerings, Dubai is a microcosm of the Middle East, which houses…

10 virtual festivals to tune into

1 Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival The Hong Kong Tourism Board is exploring new frontiers to bring this popular annual culinary event to its audience in a new digital avatar this year. Since this will also allow it to reach a larger audience, unrestrained by geographical boundaries, the festival will be held for several weeks in November this year, instead of four days. The full programme hasn’t been released at the time of printing this magazine, but the digital festival promises as much excitement as its real-life version, with exclusive offers from wine merchants, which you can avail once you pick out your favourite wine from themed wine-tasting classes by sommeliers. You can also learn to whip up delicious cocktails with top mixologists, and cook gourmet meals with chefs. discoverhongkong.com 2…

art attack

THE INDUSTRIAL AREA of Al Quoz in Dubai is a playground for artists. Christened as Alserkal Avenue, this 46,451-square-metre area is a melting pot of art, culture, gastronomy, and innovation. Cafes, theatre houses, yoga studios, art galleries, and other ventures thrive here. The pièce de résistance, however, is Concrete—designed by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture—which hosts a collection of warehouses that double as exhibition spaces. A visit now would mean catching the latest exhibition, New Waves: Mohamed Melehi and the Casablanca Art School Archives. Put up by Zamân Books & Curating, the exhibition tells the story of the radical Casablanca Art School, retracing the artist Melehi’s career from the 1950s to the 1980s. The Dubai chapter of the show exhibits Melehi’s photographs from his travels as well as highlights from his…
