Building on the success of last year’s pilot scheme, House 44, Artists-in-Residence Dubai (A.i.R. Dubai) has been established to provide opportunities for exchange, exposure and production for international and Emirati cultural practitioners. Each year, the project aims to create a very distinctive addition to the activities of Art Dubai (March 21–24, 2012) and Art Week, including Sikka Art Fair in al-Bastakiya, the historic neighborhood where the residencies take place.
A.i.R. Dubai’s partners—Art Dubai, Delfina Foundation, The Dubai Arts & Culture Authority, and Tashkeel—are delighted to announce a new international curator-in-residence opportunity next year, in collaboration with ArtAsiaPacific.
Applications are open to upcoming/mid-career curators interested in pursuing research, curatorial and critical-writing opportunities in the Gulf. The recipient will be chosen by a jury including representatives from the partner organisations, guest curator November Paynter (of SALT, Istanbul), and ArtAsiaPacific.
The dates of the residency in Dubai are January 8 to April 7, 2012.
