Event History

Art Jameel, a non-profit organisation that supports arts, education and heritage in the Middle East, has just announced a three year commissions project. The first edition is focused on Sculpture, using the medium of light; upcoming editions will consider research and lecture series (2019) and drawing and painting (2020). Art Jameel is notable for their partnerships with the V&A Museum and the Metropolitan Art Museum, as well as ongoing work to support artists and public art across the Middle East. Art Jameel Commissions will be foundational to the Centre’s future programming, reflecting the institution’s aims to be a multidisciplinary, exploratory space. Located at the tip of Dubai’s Culture Village, overlooking the Dubai Creek, the Centre includes more than 1,000 square metres of dedicated gallery space, a 300-square metre open-access research centre, flexible studio and events spaces, a café and bookshop.

Art Jameel Commissions represents a truly unique opportunity to make a visual impact on a new non-profit art centre in a truly global, dynamic city. 

The first of three years of announced commissions, the initial edition of Art Jameel Commissions focuses on Sculpture, inviting artists to respond to the medium of light, as well as to the design of the under development Art Jameel Centre, Dubai, which is set to open in 2018 (Winter). The building includes gallery spaces and event space, with a varied programme of educational and collaborative events. The winning artist will receive support and collaboration with architects and experts, in addition to a 70,000 USD production budget.

Artists can have experience with light work or may be new to the medium. Art Jameel Commissions is open to artists from or based in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, as well as those from around the world with an interest in and familiarity with these regions.

Antonia Carver, Director of Art Jameel, describes the project as such, “Art Jameel aims to support artists in the development of their practice and the new commissions programme allows us to do just that. With its focus on light technologies and mandate to create a truly public work, the inaugural ‘Art Jameel Commissions: Sculpture’ encourages artists to explore new media and reach broad audiences outside of the traditional gallery space. This programme is an exciting way for us to continue building upon Art Jamel’s strong history of exhibitions, educational initiatives, institutional partnerships and community outreach and encourage artists’ practices in, from and connected to the region.”
