Pablo del Val, Art Dubai’s Artistic Director commented:
“With every edition, Art Dubai asserts itself as the world’s most international art fair and the diversity coming through participating galleries from 47 countries is testament to this. For our 2018 edition, we will be launching Residents, a pioneering and unique platform that brings together different energies, synergies, geographies and artistic practices, which one doesn’t usually see together in one place.”
Residents 2018 presents an intimate selection of 10 solo gallery presentations by artists from around the world working across all media. The galleries in this section are presented in a special exhibition between the two Contemporary gallery halls.

The programme aims to support artists by providing a platform to develop their practice and create new work inspired and influenced by their stay in the UAE. Framed within a unique geographical and cultural context, Residents further aims to facilitate exchange and dialogue between artists, local communities and the broader cultural landscape.

During the residency, artists have the opportunity to engage with the local community, work collaboratively with one another, participate in talks and conduct open studios.
