Campus Art Dubai (CAD) is a school for artists, curators, writers, architects, designers and cultural producers based in the UAE. Meetings occur over weekends and feature courses, talks, workshops, taught and led by a local and international cast of academics, critics, curators and artists. The course provides a space for critical thinking and the exchange of ideas and skills, with participants encouraged to collaborate, debate and challenge.
CAD 3.0, the third iteration of Campus Art Dubai, ran from October 2014 to March 2015, culminating at Art Dubai and Art Week 2015.
CAD 3.0 was led by the Sharjah-born, New York-based curator and writer Murtaza Vali, with anthropologist Uzma Rizvi, a professor at Pratt Institute of Art and Design, New York.
