Reaffirming its reputation as the global art fair, Art Dubai 2016 in its 10th edition will feature large and internationally diverse line-up to date—with 94 galleries from 40 countries.
Presenting rare works by Middle Eastern, African and Asian modern masters through to the world’s most notable contemporary artists of today, the fair will take place at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai from March 16-19. Audiences will discover the work of more than 500 artists representing 70 nationalities, whose work is exhibited by the most influential galleries alongside emerging, independent art spaces.
“This year marks the tenth edition of the fair, and this anniversary encourages us to reflect on the dramatic growth of the art market and arts scenes of the Middle East, South Asia and Africa over the past decade,” says Antonia Carver, Fair Director. “Art Dubai acts as a catalyst and focal point, locally and for the wider region, and the diverse nature of our programming reflects the central role played by the fair.”
With 17 booths from the UAE alone, the fair exemplifies the development and growth of the local scene, with 1×1 Gallery, Artspace, Ayyam Gallery, Carbon12, East Wing Gallery, Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde, Green Art Gallery, Grey Noise, Leila Heller Gallery, Lawrie Shabibi, Meem Gallery and The Third Line participating in the fair.
Art Dubai’s tenth edition includes galleries that have exhibited continuously at the fair for the majority of the past decade, evolving with and contributing to the growth of the wider market Art Dubai serves: Agial Art Gallery (Beirut), Elmarsa (Tunis, Dubai), Galleria Continua (San Gimignano, Les Moulins, Beijing, Havana), Galerie Krinzinger (Vienna), Sfeir-Semler Gallery (Hamburg, Beirut), Grosvenor Gallery (London), Kalfayan Galleries (Athens, Thessaloniki) and The Third Line (Dubai).
