In collaboration with the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice, the Ruya Foundation organised a residency for Iraqi painter and printmaker Jafar Mohamed. The artist was given his own studio space and received regular supervision from professors at the Scuola. Ruya organised guided tours of Venice’s artistic institutions, the ongoing Venice Biennale exhibition and a trip to Florence for the artist. At the end of his stay, the Scuola held an exhibition of Mohamed’s work, where he also gave a talk.
