The Abraaj Group Art Prize recognises notable artists from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. Following an intensive jury process, the Jury selects a winning artist to recieve a $100,000 commission to be revealed at Art Dubai 2017, plus three shortlisted artists, whose work is showcased in a thematic group exhibition at the fair. The Prize is unique in its format, awarding the mid-career, winning artist a major commission based on a proposal (rather than a completed work), plus affording all four exhibited artists the opportunity to gain recognition at an international level.
The exhibition for the ninth edition of the Abraaj Group Art Prize will take place at Art Dubai, March 15 - 18, 2017.
