Art Dubai has announced that the works commissioned through the ten years of the Abraaj Group Art Prize have been permanently acquired by Art Jameel and will be managed as part of the organisation’s collection, in part based at the Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai.

The first work to be exhibited within the Art Jameel Collection will be Taysir Batniji’s To My Brother, comprised of 60 hand-carvings on paper, as part of a series of Artist’s Rooms at Jameel Arts Centre, opening in May 2020.

With today’s announcement, Art Jameel confirmed that it will henceforth be administering the collection in its entirety and will oversee all future loans, exhibiting and conservation, in accordance with international museum standards.
