Afra Al Dhaheri

Dubai Public Art has unveiled its inaugural shortlist of creatives during a session at Art Dubai.

A multi-year project organised by Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, Dubai Public Art will develop and install major art commissions across the city, starting with Al Hudaiba — overlooking Etihad Museum and Union House.

The first five Emirati artists were selected from more than 250 applications and include Afra Al Dhaheri, Asma Belhamar, Khalid Albanna, Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim and Shaikha Al Mazrou. Each will receive $5,000 to prepare a detailed proposal and maquette, with the winner eventually being announced in spring, and their finished work unveiled at the end of the year.
