- What’s On
One of the world’s top art fairs. In its 11th year, the fair will feature over 90 galleries from 43 countries, its strongest programme to date.
The fair is split into two sections, Art Dubai Contemporary and Art Dubai Modern. The former will feature 79 contemporary art galleries spread across two halls. A selection of 30 or so galleries will focus on solo or two-artist exhibitions. Three Istanbul galleries – Galerist, Galeri Zilberman and Sanatorium – will be in attendance.
Now in its fourth edition, the Modern section will showcase museum-quality works by modern masters from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia. Fifteen galleries from 12 countries will participate in this smaller section, which will exhibit the ‘icon of Arab graphic arts’ Mustafa Al Hallaj (1938-2002), among others.
The fair also boasts an extensive not-for-profit programme.
