Museum in the Sky is a special experience brought to viewers by the Khaleeji Art Museum that is now available on Emirates Airlines, the world’s leading airlines, and Etihad Airways. Showing on Emirates Airlines’ inflight entertainment, Ice, from April 2022 onwards, and on Etihad Airways’ inflight entertainment, E-Box, from July 2022 onwards, the experience allows passengers onboard all Emirates and Etihad flights to enjoy art of the Arab Gulf States and become more familiar with it. It is also part of the Khaleeji Art Museum’s ongoing effort to present the art of the region in innovative ways to build cultural bridges with millions of people around the world.
Passengers will meet artists who are from and/or are based in the region, who speak about their artistic journeys and showcase some of their favourite creations in their individual galleries in the sky.
In its second volume, five Gulf artists– Jalal Luqman, Sumayyah Alsuwaidi, Ishaq Madan, Maitha Hamdan and Mohammed Al Attar– share their art journeys and works of theirs that hold significance to them. The second volume of Museum in the Sky is sponsored by the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa), a not-for-profit enterprise with a mandate for developing the entrepreneurship ecosystem in the Emirate of Sharjah and providing technology startups with a launchpad for success. It is also brought with the support of our media partners Sekka, a media brand that is dedicated to exploring art, culture, literature and opinions from the Arab world that is based in London, UK.
