Task Party Dubai was an improvisational event with a simple structure and very few rules conceived by Oliver Herring, a visiting artist living in Brooklyn, New York. Task Party’s open-ended participatory structure creates almost unlimited opportunities for a group of people to interact with one another and their environment.

Presented as part of Quoz Arts Fest 2016, Task Party Dubai was developed as part of the 2015-2016 season of the Alserkal Avenue Programme, which sets out to critically examine the expanding concepts of community and belonging that are taking shape in Dubai. Commissioned artists have been invited to investigate the industrial heritage of Al Quoz and the points of intersection between Alserkal Avenue and its neighbourhood through particular artistic forms, including performance, social practice, research and public art.
