This exhibition booklet is a record of the sixth edition of March Project exhibition. March Project is an educational residency programme that provides opportunities for artists to research, realise and present site-specific works.

Drawing on their various research and artistic practices, the artists in the 2019 edition explored a number of issues, namely, the relationships between architecture, the built environment and the body as well as heritage and contemporary practices that make up our social, visual and cultural fabric.

Participants in the March Project 2019 are Asma Belhamar, Farah Al Qasimi, May Rashed and Saeed Al Madani from the United Arab Emirates, Filwa Nazer from Saudi Arabia and Mario Santanilla from Colombia.
