The eleventh edition of Art Dubai promises to be the most international to date, welcoming new galleries and some new countries to the fair for the first time, alongside some ambitious new elements to the programming.
Highlights of the fair’s growing offering include Art Dubai’s inaugural Modern Symposium, initiated to celebrate the cultural impact of 20th century masters from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia; a visual, sensory and gastronomic experience by Beirut-based artist collective Atfal Ahdath at ‘The Room’; and a series of commissioned dance performances during the fair (from 3.30pm each day).
“Through its year-round activities, educational initiatives and artistic commissions, Art Dubai redefines what an art fair can be,” said Myrna Ayad, the recently installed Fair Director. “This year, with new initiatives such as the Modern Symposium and our largest performance art programme to date, we will be able to offer further insights into the regional art scene.”
Art Dubai 2017 will have 93 galleries from 43 countries, reinforcing its position both as the world’s most globally diverse art fair and the pre-eminent regional art fair.
