Art Dubai Contemporary
Art Dubai Contemporary is extraordinarily diverse. The 2016 fair featured 76 galleries from 36 countries, from the world’s most influential galleries to dynamic young artspaces.
Likewise, the artists ranged from emerging and upcoming practitioners from lesser-known art capitals to household names. The works they presented covered all artistic media—including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, photography and performance.

Always aiming to foreground quality and a curatorial approach, Art Dubai has a close relationship with its galleries: the artists they represent, and the works they select, reconfirm year-on- year the fair’s role as a site of discovery and diversity.
Art Dubai Contemporary features commercial galleries working in the primary market and established for at least two years.
Applications for Art Dubai 2017 are now closed and the exhibitor list will be announced in November.
Applications for Art Dubai 2018 will be open from May to September 2017
All applications are reviewed by Art Dubai’s Selection Committee, comprised of gallerists and guest curators. The committee discusses each application, basing their final selection on the curatorial strength of the gallery exhibition programme and the gallery’s submitted proposal.
