ART HERE. ART NOW. IN THE UAE.
Be part of the new exhibition and art prize for Emirati and UAE-based artists, an initiative by Louvre Abu Dhabi and supported by Richard Mille.
A NEW STAGE FOR EMIRATI AND UAE-BASED ARTISTS
Sponsored by Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille, we are opening an annual exhibition and art prize that illuminates the extraordinary contemporary art scene in the UAE. We are creating a new stage at Louvre Abu Dhabi for our regional artists, giving them a platform to be seen and heard, and a space in which to express themselves and come together.
EXHIBIT YOUR ARTWORK AT LOUVRE ABU DHABI
If you are an artist from or working in the UAE, we want to hear from you. We invite you to submit a proposal in response to our exhibition thematic: ‘Memory, Time and Territory’. Your proposal, which can be a new or existing artwork, should reflect on how collective memory relates to questions of space and time. Our jury of international art experts will be selecting four to six artists to exhibit in the Forum of Louvre Abu Dhabi from November 2021 until March 2022.
RICHARD MILLE ART PRIZE
Our jury will award one of the selected artists with the Richard Mille Art Prize. Our winner will receive a prize of 50,000 USD.
