A.i.R. Dubai 2012
This 30-minute commissioned documentary opens a window into the imagination of six artists selected to participate in the Artist in Residency (AiR) Dubai 2012 program. Over a period of three months, three emerging UAE artists and their international counterparts created personal works in the lead up to Art Dubai and Sikka Art Fair while based in Al Bastakiya, Dubai's old quarter.
Award-winning filmmaker Mahmoud Kaabour followed Deniz Üster, Fayçal Baghriche, Magdi Mostafa, Hadeyeh Badri, Nasir Nasrallah and Zeinab Alhashemi, together with resident curator, Alexandra MacGilp, through the last weeks of the residency as they reflected on their inspirations, impressions of Dubai, and their personal processes of creating art.
This annual residency program is the result of a close collaboration between Art Dubai, Delfina Foundation (London), Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and Tashkeel.
