At the centre of our not-for-profit programme is Art Dubai Commissions, a commissioning platform that invites artists to produce site-specific works, further enhancing the cultural landscape and supporting artistic production by local and international artists. The Art Dubai 2020 Commissions will introduce multi-disciplinary site-specific projects with an ecological focus, curated by Paris-based, independent curator Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez. For the first time, the Commissions will be undertaken in collaboration with the Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai’s leading contemporary art institution. The collaboration will see a months-long season continuum in Dubai, that takes the form of artists’ projects that will be developed, hosted and researched at Jameel Arts Centre, with iterations of the projects to be showcased at Art Dubai in March 2020.
