Brief Description

Art Jameel Commissions is an annual programme anchored at the forthcoming Jameel Arts Centre in Dubai. The programme runs in a 3-year cycle, focussing on sculpture (2018); research and lecture series (2019); and drawing and painting (2020). Art Jameel Commissions is open to artists from or based in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, as well as those from around the world with an interest in and familiarity with these regions. The commissions programme builds on Art Jameel’s longstanding interest in producing and exhibiting public works. Each commission will play a central role in the Jameel Arts Centre’s programming, and should embrace the institution’s aims, to be a multidisciplinary, exploratory space dedicated to contemporary artists, writers and researchers from across the Middle East and beyond, and welcoming of a broad local, regional and international audience base.
