Residents


Art Dubai 2019 featured the second edition of Residents, dedicated to solo presentations from invited galleries whose artists took part in a 4-8 week residency in the UAE. For the 2019 edition, Residents will focus on Latin America. The programme encouraged the artists to immerse themselves in the local art scene and 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, co-curated the expanded Residents section of the fair.

Emirati curator Munira Al Sayegh, a well-established name in the UAE art scene, both co-curated Residents and worked with the Campus Art Dubai 7.0 cohort, who created a body of work that was exhibited during the fair.

Residents is supported by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation
