The 2017 Abraaj Group Art Prize
Contributions by Sarah Abu Abdallah, Doa Aly, Amino Belyamani, Rana Begum, Omar Berrada, Milton Cruz, Raha Raissnia
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 features “seepage/ritual,” an exhibition with the work of winner Rana Begum and the three short-listed artists: Sarah Abu Abdallah, Doa Aly, and Raha Raissnia. Organized by guest curator Omar Berrada, the exhibition explores a reconfiguration of our geometries of attention through a playful engagement with literal geometry. As a companion, this publication is conceived as a parallel exhibition in book form, and contains original interventions by and in collaboration with the artists.
seepage/ritual is published on the occasion of the Abraaj Group Art Prize 2017, Art Dubai, Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, March 14-18, 2017.
