The Abraaj Group Art Prize 2017
Omar Berrada (Ed.)
Providing an important platform for new and ambitious work from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia, the ninth installment of the Abraaj Group Art Prize this year features seepage/ritual, an exhibition of the work of winner UK-based artist Rana Begum (b. 1977) and three short-listed artists: Saudi filmmaker and video artist Sarah Abu Abdallah (b. 1990), Egyptian artist Doa Aly (b. 1976) and Brooklyn-based Iranian artist Raha Raissnia (b. 1968). Organized by guest curator Omar Berrada, the exhibition featured at Art Dubai 2017 explores a reconfiguration of our geometries of attention through a playful engagement with literal geometry. As a companion, the the fully illustrated softcover publication is conceived as a parallel exhibition in book form, and contains original interventions by and in collaboration with the artists. Contributions by Omar Berrada, Rana Begum, Sarah Abu Abdallah, Doa Aly, Raha Raissnia and Milton Cruz.
