Art Dubai Contemporary
Art Dubai Contemporary tends to be extraordinary diverse. In 2015 the halls featured 72 galleries from 35 countries, from the world’s most influential galleries to dynamic young artspaces. Likewise, the artists range 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 features commercial galleries working in the primary market and established for at least two years.
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.
