The 14th edition of Art Dubai, the region’s leading art fair will be hosted across a number of purpose-built venues at the iconic Gate Building and throughout the Centre.
Taking place from tomorrow, 29 March to 3 April, Art Dubai is one of the first global in-person art events taking place since the pandemic. The DIFC event will feature a diverse calendar of activities including exhibitions from over 50 galleries representing 31 countries.
Around the Gate District, a specially curated sculpture park will have large-scale installations by eight artists including Emiratis Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim and Hussain Sharif. A new programme at Gate Avenue will present single-channel films produced by over 20 regional and international artists. The films are thematically categorised to cover Nature, Journeys, Dystopias, Conversations, Performances and Animations, among others.
Art Dubai is a joint venture between DIFC Investments and Middle East Fairs and forms part of DIFC’s wider approach to developing the art and culture scene in Dubai, something that it has been doing since opening in 2004. Art Dubai will open doors to enriching experiences for visitors to DIFC, which is well known across the region as the premium leisure and cultural destination where business meets leisure.
