Curator, Abraaj Group Art Prize 2017
As a curator, you might think of artists' countries or regions of origin when considering large group shows or in the context of reflecting on geopolitical imbalances in the art world for instance. But when you are working with an artist on a project, only the one-on-one relationship counts, irrespective of where the artist is from.
I have really thought of the AGAP exhibition as a group show, so I can't wait to see the works come together and interact in the exhibition space. I am also very excited for the four artists to finally meet, after each of them heard me speak about the three others for several months!
