Taking place each year in March, Art Dubai presents a select yet
diverse line-up of around 90 galleries from the UAE and around the
world, across three programmes: Contemporary; Modern, devoted to masters from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia; and Marker, a curated section of artspaces that focuses each year on a particular theme or geography.
Alongside the gallery halls, Art Dubai’s extensive not-for-profit
programme includes a dynamic roster of commissioned projects, film and radio programmes; artists’ and curators’ residencies; educational initiatives for children through to professionals, including the year-round art school Campus Art Dubai; an annual exhibition of works by winners of The Abraaj Group Art Prize; and the critically-acclaimed Global Art Forum.
Over the last nine years, Art Dubai has become a cornerstone of the
region’s fast-growing contemporary arts community. Recognised as one of
the most globalised meeting points in the art world today, Art Dubai
places an emphasis on maintaining its intimate, human scale while
foregrounding quality and diversity.
Art Dubai is held in partnership with The Abraaj Group and is sponsored
by Emaar, Julius Baer and Piaget. Madinat Jumeirah is home to the
event. Mashreq Private Banking is the exclusive partner of Art Dubai
Modern. The Dubai Culture and Arts Authority is a strategic partner of
