Under the D.A.R.B initiative, Dongola presents a tailor-made, intensive eight day residency in Beirut to a select number of artists. This residency will familiarize the artists with the world of artists’ books, and give them the methods necessary to create them. A valuable opportunity given to young, up-and-coming artists, this residency will allow those selected to learn how to produce an art object that accompanies their own practices through the tradition of artist’s books. This is in line with the values carried by Dongola as a unique platform for representation and experimentation. The residency will be followed by a collective exhibition and publication that aims to enrich contemporary Arab art and encourage its place on the international art scene.
