Paris Biennale Application Form

The ArtBAB Artists Programme is a project that grew organically out of the main ArtBAB art fair. It is a platform for Bahraini artists to interact with contemporaries around the world and alongside their exhibitions in different countries, it helps them visit artist studios, museums and leading exhibitions and generate a nuanced world view for their art, expanding their international influences.

The ambitious project aims to solidify Bahrain’s position as a regional arts and education hub whilst stimulating investment and economic activity in the arts and cultural sector.

Applications will be considered by our selection committee until June 15, 2019, with decisions being made by the International Selection Committee July.
