Initiated in 2012 as the first educational project of its kind, Campus Art Dubai (CAD) is the year-round programme of Art Dubai, acting as a school for UAE-based artists, curators, writers, architects, designers, and cultural producers.
CAD 8.0‘s programme, named “Animal/Vegetable/Mineral: Symbiotic Life in a Parasitic World” is led by tutors Uzma Z. Rizvi, Murtaza Vali, and programme curator Munira Al Sayegh, besides a group of international guest instructors. Participating artists will investigate how the global-scale urgency of the climate crisis requires us to rethink the relationship among different forms of life on the planet. Through a series of talks, seminars, and workshops, the participants lead their research in dialogue with the local culture and regional institutions.
