The year 1989 saw the introduction of the World Wide Web and the beginning of the universal availability of the Internet. Positing a relationship between these world-changing events and creative production at large, 89plus introduces the work of some of this generation’s most inspiring protagonists. Workshops, interviews and a presentation at Art Dubai 2015 were geared towards developing a collaborative project – the first in the region – to be presented at Art Dubai 2016.
Part of Art Dubai’s not-for-profit projects programming, 89plus Dubai culminated in a performance-based, collaborative text and voice-based project at Art Dubai 2016. The programme was accompanied by a publication by WTD which includes an essay by Sarah Abu Abdallah and Abdallah Al -Mutairi.
