The Daman Art Exchange Program and the Daman Art Edition.
Daman is the leading health insurance company in the United Arab Emirates. Through a strategic partnership with the Munich Re, Daman is working on very international and intercultural basis. The desire to promote this intercultural approach further on a cultural level, led to the birth of the “Daman Art Edition” and “Daman Art Exchange Program” in the year 2011.
Together with the Lepsien Art Foundation an innovative and unique concept in the Middle East region has been developed and implemented in order to effectively support artists and to dedicate very special gifts to the customers of Daman.
Daman Art Exchange Program
Out of multiple applications from predominantly Emirati artists one grant holder for the Daman Art Exchange Program will be selected per year. The Lepsien Art Foundation invites this artist for a few weeks to Germany to work in the Art House Düsseldorf. There, the artist produces an exclusive and limited serigraphy art edition in the serigraphy workshop Boll-Werk only for Daman. During the stay, the artist is also able to expand his/her network with other artists working in the Art House and to explore the art and culture city Düsseldorf.
The Daman Art Edition
The exclusive edition art works are then presented in the UAE under the name “Daman Art Edition” to customers of the company as a very special gift during the Eid holidays and other occasions.
Real collectors pieces.
All art works are hand signed, dated and numbered by the artists. The Daman Art Edition is limited to 150 pieces per motif thus each artwork is a real collectors piece.
Exhibition in Abu Dhabi
Furthermore an exhibition is hosted in Abu Dhabi by Daman where latest art works of the grant holders, the art editions and photos and videos from the making off will be presented.
