Nadia Kaabi-Linke has been selected to be part of an International Jury selecting the first, second and third place winners for the 9th edition of the Young Artist of the Year Award (YAYA), curated by Nat Muller. Muller formulated this year’s call for applications within the context of the 2016 Qalandiya International’s theme of re-imagining the artistic conceptualisation of ‘Return’, titled “This Sea is Mine”.
The A M Qattan Foundation shortlisted nine artists, who were given a period of 6 months for the production of their works, which will then be submitted for the final stages of the Award and exhibited in a 3 week exhibition as part of Qalandiya International (Qi) in October 2016.
