This event has ended.

The Abraaj Capital Art Prize is an award that seeks to raise international awareness of artists from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA). The prize encourages collaborations between the artists and established and internationally acclaimed curators, bridging the gap between Middle Eastern and Western art worlds and offering these artists opportunities to realize ambitious art projects and to gain recognition beyond their immediate cultural environment. The three winners, whose spectacular art works were unveiled at Art Dubai, are Iran's Nazgol Ansarinia, Algeria's Zoulikha Bouabdellah and Turkey's Kutlug Ataman.
