Residents 2018 will feature 10 artists from around the world. 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 during a 4-8 week residency. 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 will have the opportunity to engage with the local community, work collaboratively with one another, participate in talks and conduct open studios.
Residents include: Ghanaian-German artist Zohra Opoku (Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, Seattle), Lithuanian artist Kristina Alisauskaite (The Rooster Gallery, Vilnius), Indonesian artist Piko Iabadiou (Orbital Dago, Bandung), and Turkish artist Jennifer Ipekel (Öktem&Aykut, Istanbul).
