The winning artworks of the fifth edition of The Abraaj Group Art Prize were unveiled at Art Dubai this week, in the specially curated exhibition extra | ordinary, which showcases the common themes running through this year’s works and yet highlights the diversity of each creative process.
Guest Curator Murtaza Vali on the curatorial concept behind the exhibition: “The five works in this exhibition spring forth from the rich bedrock of the ordinary. Varied in subject matter and media, they all occupy that minor register of culture, history, politics and contemporary life that encompasses the quotidian, the private, personal and domestic, the popular and vernacular, the lost and forgotten.
