The new Abraaj Capital Art Prize -- three awards of $200,000 each to artist-curator teams -- is being unveiled at Art Dubai, Mar. 18-21, 2009. The winning teams are Cristiana Perrella and video artist Kutlug Ataman, Carol Solomon and light-installation artist Zoulikha Bouabdellah, and Leyla Fakhr and Nazgol Ansarinia, who had a carpet woven to her own design. Sponsored by the leading Mideast private equity firm, the prize is designed to focus attention on the art and artists from the "MENASA" region (Middle East, North Africa and South Asia). Following their debut in Dubai, the three works are touring to various venues before becoming part of the Abraaj Capital art collection.
