Art Jameel in Partnership with Edge of Arabia launches a second year of artist residencies at the International Studio & Curatorial Programme (ISCP) in Brooklyn. The program aims to connect Middle Eastern artists with new audiences, and to explore interconnected stories that link ideas and people across physical and psychological borders. Nearly 200 applications were submitted by artists living and working across the Middle East and North Africa for Art Jameel and EOA’s first collaboration with ISCP in 2014. The inaugural residency awardees were Taysir Batniji (b. 1966, Gaza, Palestine) and Foundland (a collective comprised of Ghalia Elsrakbi b. 1978, Damascus, Syria and Lauren Alexander b. 1983, Cape Town, South Africa).
