Curated by Johannesburg-based Kabelo Malatsie, Residents returns in 2020 for its third iteration with a focus on the African continent. Residents showcases solo presentations from invited galleries whose artists have partaken in a UAE-based residency. The residency programme encourages artists to explore and engage with the local art and culture scene. This specific geographic focus allows for a more contextualised experience for visitors, and creates a dialogue between artistic practices and geographic social experiences.

Residents has seen many success stories, including 2019 participating artist Brazilian artist Luiz Roque, whose work has since been exhibited at the New Museum in New York City, and Argentinian artist Luciana Lamothe, whose work Limber Sharp is now showcased at the Jameel Arts Centre in Dubai.
