International auction house Sotheby’s plans to open its first gallery in Dubai as part of efforts to capitalise on demand for Middle Eastern art coming from the region. “Over the last five years we have seen that the number of clients participating in our global sales has more than doubled, and the spending by these clients has nearly tripled,” said Edward Gibbs, senior director and chairman, Middle East and India. “By expanding in the region we are seeking to serve our clients as best as we can,” he added.
