A Glimpse Into Art Dubai 2016

Scroll

We were recently invited to attend the 10th anniversary of the Middle East’s leading art fair, Art Dubai, where we were treated to works by over 500 artists hailing from more than 70 countries. Speaking of diversity, we were happy to see that 46% of this year’s Art Dubai artists were female.

While in the city, we visited several other art shows and concept spaces, such as the Sikka Art Fair – a traditional Emirati-style village and platform for diverse cultural exchange and innovation, dedicated to promoting the work of emerging artists. We also visited Design Days Dubai, a show focusing on collectible and limited-edition furniture and design objects. Finally, we stopped by Al Quoz, a warehouse district in the outskirts of Dubai hosting an inspiring assortment of independent galleries and artists. Our favorite artworks and impressions from the shows are below.
