Art Dubai Commissions, as part of the extensive not-for-profit programme, gives regional and international artists the opportunity to develop dynamic site-specific works for the grounds of the fair. For the first time, Art Dubai Commissions focused solely on performance art.
Yasmina Reggad returned to curate a series of new performances by artists Manuel Pelmuş, Lana Fahmi, Eglé Budvytytė, Iván Argote and Pauline Bastard. The performances explored the idea of interrupting, diverting and disturbing the audience.
Through these type of performances you can witness very genuine and memorable reactions, and it’s always rewarding to see people surprised, curious and intrigued by the art form.
