things to do arts and exhibitions 4TH INTERNATIONAL EMERGING ARTIST AWARD
4th International Emerging Artist Award
Updated on 28 October 2015

The 4th International Emerging Artist Awards is showcasing a selection of contemporary fine art by Emirati and international laureates, representing the best discoveries from the prestigious award since its inception.

Award Director and event curator, Rebia Naim, commented: "The event aims at showing the diversity in contemporary art, from cultural backgrounds that influence the artist's style, to mediums that unveil innovative and experimental art practices, making us realise there is no one definition to contemporary art”. 

The exhibition gathers 18 laureates from previous editions and coincides with the Open Call for the 2015-2016 award edition, aiming to encouraging both Emirati and international artists with ambitious career plans to take a chance in the award program. Entries will be received until 15th January 2016 through online registration at www.emergingartistaward.com

The Awards are being hosted in ‘Plantation’ at the Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach. Sofitel has been an active player in developing the local art scene providing support to both artists and art organisations to set up exclusive art shows in its 5* venues. As the official hospitality partner of the 4th International Emerging Artist Award, Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach will provide an outstanding stay package to the winners. 

The exhibition will run until 30th November 2015 and is free to attend.
