Carbon 12 was clear in its mind when it opened its doors in 2008 that it would become a bespoke resource for institution-grade artists to take their talent to the world. Taking full advantage of their comprehensive and global program, they introduced artists at all levels to the UAE contemporary art scene. What works very well for them are the 6 to 8 annual exhibitions they hold, giving them frequent opportunities to showcase their works.
Their diverse portfolios include producing relevant publications and they regularly have talks wherein the speakers address issues of current interest. The organic work ethos is unique and underscores the cheerful and positive vibrations that mark their approach to art.
