Over the next few months, we look forward to providing a platform for participating artists to develop their practice.”

Participating artists include Nayla Ahmed, Roda Al Khori, Abeer Al-Kuwari, May Al Mannai, Yasser Al Mulla, Fatima Al-Nuaimi, Fatma Al-Remaihi, Maryam Al-Semaitt & Nawar Al-Mutlaq, Maryam Faraj Al-Suwaidi, Alaa Bata, Sebastian Betancur-Montoya, Ryan Browning, and Hassan Manasrah, Michael Perrone and Guillaume Rouseré.
