Dubai-based private equity Abraaj Capital has today announced the winning teams of artists and curators for the 2010 edition of the Abraaj Capital Art Prize. Established to raise awareness of
work created by artists across the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA), the Abraaj Capital Art Prize was launched last year as a platform for emerging artistic talent.
The recipients of the second edition of the Prize are Egyptian artist Hala Elkoussy and curator Jelle Bouwhuis; Lebanese artist Marwan Sahmarani and curator Mahita El Bacha Urieta; and Algerian artist Kader Attia and curator Laurie Ann Farrell.
They have now embarked upon a six-month period during which their art works have to be completed. The works will then be unveiled during Art Dubai in March and become part of the Abraaj Capital Art Collection.
