The UAE’s leading art fair, Art Dubai, is set to take place at the end of the month, bringing international galleries together for the first time in over a year.
After some uncertainty over whether, where and when it could happen, Art Dubai will take place from March 29 to April 3 at the Dubai International Centre, coinciding with the UAE’s 50th anniversary.
The 14th edition of the major art fair, for which Mayfair Times is a media partner, will see around 80 galleries from around the world showcase works of art from international artists – with the fair’s programming largely led by participating artists. This year will offer visitors a new emphasis on live art happenings and a variety of site-specific experiences scattered throughout the UAE city – including tours of textile souks and installations that encourage human interaction.
At the Dubai International Centre, three spaces will offer different artistic perspectives and practices. Art Dubai Contemporary galleries will feature a diverse selection of galleries putting the spotlight on emerging and working artists; Art Dubai Modern will showcase works by 20th century modern masters from the MENASA region; and Bawwaba features solo presentations created within the last year or made specifically for this edition of the fair.
“We are thankful for the enduring support from our exhibiting galleries, and the trust they have placed in us throughout the last year,” said Pablo del Val, Art Dubai’s artistic director. “We believe in the importance of bringing communities together at physical events and as the only international art fair going forward in the first quarter of 2021, we believe there’s a unique opportunity that our platform can offer to visitors who are keen to explore, discover and re-engage with the international art world.”
