Beyond: Emerging Artists is an annual initiative that launched in 2017. The programme provides three emerging artists in the UAE with a platform from which to develop their practice and realise ambitious art projects. The selected artists are chosen by a guest curator each year. They undertake a year-long programme of workshops and studio visits initiatied by the guest curator which leads toward the realisation of a project for the Abu Dhabi Art fair in November. The works remain on exhibition to the public for several months beyond the fair dates.

"We are thrilled to be curating Abu Dhabi Art's 2021 Beyond: Emerging Artists programme. The next edition will showcase new commissions by three very diverse artists whose practice is marked by a truly interdisciplinary approach, in both conceptual reference and choice of media. Departing from a position of heightened social engagement, and with remarkable formal inventiveness and intellectual rigour, Maitha, Hashel and Christopher touch upon a number of pertinent issues, that are of significant relevance to the socio-cultural context of the UAE, as well as the current discourse within the global arts community."
