Alserkal Residency was created as a platform for artistic and discursive exchange, seeking to support cultural practitioners as they realise projects pertinent to their respective practices. The programme is designed to be immersive and engage the local interdisciplinary community through a series of public events and conversations. Founded by Abdelmonem Bin Eisa Alserkal and the Alserkal family, the Residency focuses on research-based and socially-engaged practices.
Split into three cycles – Spring, Summer and Fall – via a combination of open calls and solicited proposals, Alserkal Residency is open to emerging and mid-career artists, as well as curators, architects, writers, and researchers working in related fields.
The primary focus of the Residency is to foster an exploration of ideas. Residents are expected to contribute towards creating a dynamic public programme that engages local and regional audiences.
Based in a 6,000 sq. foot warehouse space located in the heart of Alserkal Avenue the residency was designed by UAE-based architectural collective ‘a hypothetical office’, and can accommodate up to six residents per cycle.
