Calling all artists… and curators too! The Abraaj Group Art Prize has announced the launch of the Open Call for artists and curators interested in taking part in the seventh edition of the prize. The curators’ applications are accepted until June 22, 2014, while artists’ applications are open until June 29, 2014.
Four artists will be shortlisted for the prize and one (of the four) artists awarded the $100,000 commission. The commissioned work will be exhibited as part of The Abraaj Group Art Prize exhibition at Art Dubai 2015, before becoming part of The Abraaj Group Art Collection. The three shortlisted artists will receive a cash prize and be represented in the exhibition through previous works, which will be carefully selected by the Guest Curator in liaison with the artist.
The Abraaj Group Art Prize was founded in 2008 and is now in its seventh edition. The aim of the prize is to reflect The Abraaj Group’s dedication to empowering potential in the region, giving talented artists the opportunity to break new ground and showcase the rich artistic and cultural heritage of the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia region. It rewards selected artists on the basis of a proposal rather than completed works-of-art.
