At the centre of Art Dubai’s not-for-profit programme is Art Dubai Commissions, a platform that invites artists to produce site-specific works, as a means to support artistic production by local and international artists and further enhance the cultural landscape.

Complementing Art Dubai’s Bawwaba gallery section, and curated by Emiliano Valdes under the theme ‘Sanación/Healing’, this year’s Art Dubai Commissions will feature a series of new performances and activations focusing on ideas of introspection, spirituality, community and the power of art to help us navigate challenging times.

Participating artists, including Mirna Bamieh, Cecilia Bengolea, Hashel Al Lamki, Sajan Mani, Debashish Paul and Mithu Sen will explore various aspects of the healing process, creating spaces for contemplation and introspection, socially oriented practices that engage with local communities as well as creating nurturing and liberating experiences.
