Abu Dhabi Art Launches Art and Technology Programme

As part of Abu Dhabi Art’s innovative year-long programme of initiatives, the annual art fair has launched a new creative residency in partnership with Khalifa University.

Engineering and science students have been invited to work with renowned international contemporary artists to create artworks. The artists will also be showing works reflecting on these student workshops at Abu Dhabi Art’s ninth edition, taking place on November 08– 11. The first series of workshops were held from October 22–26 with contemporary artists Feng Mengbo and Magdi Mostafa.

Commenting on the workshop Mengbo, said, “[...] I am always impressed by the UAE’s focus on education and art, which I believe is very important to the young generation. The students [...] were all open and willing to explore new media.”
