|DUBAI Brandon Scherff Redskins Jersey , March 17 (Xinhua) -- The annual Art Dubai exhibitions kicked off on Tuesday, bringing together, for the first time in the event's history, Latin American arts and the Arab-Islamic world.
During a week of exhibitions, the event, in its ninth edition, will host some 92 galleries from 40 countries.
Antonia Carver, fair director of Art Dubai, said this year's edition offers for the first time in its history a platform that links Spanish-and Portuguese-speaking culture in Latin America with the Arab-Islamic world.
"We are happy to welcome over 40 artists from Latin America who travelled to Dubai to exhibit their paintings, sculptures and audiovisual projects," Ms. Carver said.
She added that it's an opportunity of discovering "the historical and contemporary connections between Central America, South America and the Middle East and North Africa."
According to Luiza Teixeira de Freitas, a Brazilian art manager of Lebanese origin and also curator of one of the event's program, Arab influence on South America is seen "in every way of life mostly due to waves of immigration by Palestinians and Lebanese during the last 100 years."
De Freitas said the idea to bring Latin America to Art Dubai came up to her when she visited the last edition, which was focused then on Central Asia and West Africa.
Among the exhibiting Latin American galleries is the renowned Bolsa de Arte, or art market, from Porto Alegre, Brazil.
"We showcase contemporary paintings from renowned Brazilian artist Nelson Leimer," said Marga Pasquali, manager of Bolsa de Arte. Leimer's works criticize the influence of the U.S. materialism on its neighbors and the rest of the globe, which is also a common subject among Arab artists.
Art Dubai is supported by the official Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and organized annually under the patronage of the United Arab Emirates vice president, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum.
Last year it attracted some 25,000 visitors, according to fair director Carver. Art Dubai 2015, which runs through Saturday, is the biggest fair ever since its inception in 2007.
What causes failure? What is the solution? For years, I asked myself these questions; because I mostly failed. My failure pattern started in childhood. Riding the school bus, students teased and beat me regularly. "Chinese, Japanese, dirty knees . . . ," they rhymed mockingly at me interspersed with punches, slaps, and pokes. Chink and Jap became my names. I dreaded riding that bus. Each bus ride gradually drained my confidence - filling me with fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Hence, the seeds of my failure pattern were sown, reaping hundreds of failures for me. Attempting brevity, I list only some of my failures.
In adolescence, a neighborhood girl Grace infatuated me. Grace and her brothers socialized with me and my brothers. We played kick-ball, board games, and listened to music. My infatuation with Grace obsessively grew. Romance for her intensified; but fear, uncertainty, and doubt eventually abated it. Romance abated, I never told Grace that I liked her. Likewise, for every attractive woman subsequently encountered, continuing until middle adulthood.
In early adulthood, I left college and joined the Army, left the Army and rejoined college, again left college and joined the workforce, changed jobs several times, rejoined college part-time, then changed college courses several times. I eventually completed college; however, fear, uncertainty, and doubt hindered perseverance. Taking several detours, I never really quit trying to complete college. For the few things that I completed, I detoured instead of directly completing them, wasting time.
In middle adulthood, I quit a career that I desired and long prepared for. One day, unexpectedly, I entered my work office, packed my belongings, loaded them into my car, and drove home. Afterwards, screening incoming phone calls, I ignored the letters sent by my former employer. I desired career prominence, but I quit. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt fatigued me into quitting.
I wondered why some people go directly for what they want, quickly obtaining it; while others detour, quit, or never try, wasting time or never obtaining what they want. Is there a scientific formula, if followed, guaranteeing success? Education is seemingly not of this formula; my doctoral friends desiring wealth live poorly. Only educational goals require education. Intelligence is seemingly not of this formula; we know professionals in football, baseball, boxing, wrestling, acting, or music who are successful but dim-witted. Talent? Yes. But talent is just another word for performance. What makes one perform well? Genetics? If so, then music, acting, wrestling, boxing, baseball, and football genes exist. Seemingly absurd, this is also unproven.
Fed up with failure, studying many success publications, I found the following:
1. Beliefs affect one's feelings
2. Feelings affect one's performance
3. Performance affects one's success
I found that success, being purposive, involves a scientific process; anyone using this scientific process succeeds. No matter what the goal is or how failure-ridden a person's past is, the scientific process works. It's mathematical. Applying this process, I repel failure and attract success - in all life areas.
I hope you enjoyed my story. Perspectively, this story saddens, amuses, or inspires. This story saddens, in that I suffered; amuses, in that I failed; inspires, in that I overcame. Teasing and beating me regularly, circumstance victimized me. I did not ask for this; it was forced upon me. This circumstance darkly shaped my thinking, coldly shaping my feelings, evasively shaping my behavior. Dark, cold, and evasive - the failure recipe. I evaded by detouring, quitting, or not trying; it became my failure .
