Helmed by Alserkal Advisory in partnership with the Global Cultural Districts Network (GCDN), the Global Co-commission is an initiative to commission site-specific public art that responds to local environmental imperatives whilst documenting principles of responsible commissioning in an era of escalating climate crisis.

Across three continents, the cultural district and artist pairings are: Muhannad Shono (b.1977, Riyadh, KSA) for Alserkal Avenue, Dubai (UAE), Io Makandal (b.1987, Johannesburg, South Africa) for Victoria Yards, Johannesburg (South Africa), and Camille Chedda (b.1985, Manchester, Jamaica) for Kingston Creative, Kingston (Jamaica). 

Supported by UAP – Urban Art Projects, Alserkal Advisory seeks to question the full expanse of sustainability, directly addressing the climate crisis by measuring the carbon footprint of each commission and tracking its community impact
