A leading international art fair, Art Dubai aims to broaden the conversation on art beyond the traditional art centres and galleries. The event is highly regarded in the international art world and provides a platform for emerging talent, showcasing them alongside firmly established centres and well-known artists. The 13th edition will feature galleries from 41 countries across four rooms, with the new gallery section – Bawwaba – displaying solo works from artists in the Middle East, Central and South Asia, Africa and Latin America. This year’s Global Art Forum, titled 'School is a factory?', explores the landscape of contemporary education and learning.
Through Art Dubai Contemporary, art enthusiasts can explore works from the world’s most influential galleries as well as dynamic young art spaces; covering all artistic media such as painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, photography and performance. Art Dubai Modern presents museum-quality work by masters from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa, whose art has been influential throughout the 20th century.
