Beyond: Emerging Artists is an annual initiative that aims to provide three emerging artists in the UAE with a platform from which to develop their practice and realise ambitious art projects. The selected artists will be chosen by a curator and they will undertake a year-long programme of workshops and studio visits under the mentoring and the supervision of the curator in the lead up to the realisation of a project for Abu Dhabi Art in November.
The works created by the commissioned Emerging Artists are revealed during Abu Dhabi Art and remain on exhibition to the public for two months afterwards.
Abu Dhabi Art 2018 Beyond: Emerging Artists programme curator is Mohammed Ahmed Ibrahim.
