Art: Campus Art Dubai 6.0
Project Space Art Jameel is welcoming a new batch of talent to their gallery. The non-profit organisation Art Jameel has recently formed a curatorial partnership with Art Dubai for the upcoming edition of the Campus Art Dubai (CAD) programme, a highly competitive educational platform for artists, curators, writers and cultural producers based in the UAE.
The gallery has been converted into a six-week experimental summer studio for current CAD members and alumni. The communal studio will provide participants with a semi-public environment to practice, create, research and exchange ideas. So whether you want to check out their work, take a free Drawing-from-Film Workshop, or join them on the Slow Curry Community Dinner, be sure to stop by on your next visit to Alserkal Avenue or register at artjameel.org.
