Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi, UAE
20 Sep 2017 to 19 Mar 2018, 2017
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Minister, and Minister of Presidential Affairs, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center (SZGMC) and Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) organise the Hajj: Memories of a Journey exhibition at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. The exhibition explores the holy journey of Hajj, one of the five fundamental pillars and practices in Islam.
Drawing on Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s own Hajj journey in 1979, the exhibition also highlights the experiences of Emirati pilgrims over the years. Through a showcase of artefacts, historic photographs, multi-media displays, and commissioned contemporary installations, the exhibition unfolds a rich and engaging narrative charting the history and cultural context for this spiritual pilgrimage.
