Art Dubai 2020: Ithra Art Prize 2020

Madinat Jumeirah Conference & Events Centre, Al Sufouh Road, Umm Suqeim, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Initiated in 2017, the Ithra Art Prize is awarded to emerging Saudi or Saudi-based artists by a jury made of regional and international art critics, to highlight Saudi art on a global scale. As a result of the collaboration between Art Dubai and Ithra, every year the winning work is unveiled during the fair to join Ithra’s permanent collection afterward.
For 2020 the awarded artist is Fahad bin Naif for his installation “Rakhm”. Meaning “incubation” in Arabic, the project mimics the structure of a regional nursery preserving botanical species, which visitors can only experience from the outside. In this way, the architect and urban designer points out the usual fracture between the region’s human inhabitants and the local flora and the need for challenging this dynamic.
