Art Dubai 2019 will feature the second edition of Residents, dedicated to solo presentations from invited galleries whose artists will take part in a 4-8 week residency in the UAE. For the 2019 edition, Residents will focus on Latin America. The programme encourages artists to immerse themselves in the local art scene to create a body of work which merges their distinct artistic practice with their surroundings. Participation in Art Dubai Residents is by invitation only.
Brazilian Fernanda Brenner, Founder and Artistic Director of São Paulo-based contemporary art space Pivô and one of the most influential curators in Latin America, will co-curate the expanded Residents section of the fair that this year will focus on Latin America.
Emirati curator Munira Al Sayegh, a well-established name in the UAE art scene, will both co-curate Residents and work with the Campus Art Dubai 7.0 cohort, who will create a body of work that will be exhibited during the fair.
