Art Dubai has announced that it will hold its first major international art fair in the UAE during the Spring of 2021 while following all the protocols to ensure public safety.
The art fair will be held from 17 to 21 March 2021. It is one of the first international art events to be confirmed for next year.
It will feature 85 galleries from 36 countries across 3 gallery sections at Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai.
Art Dubai is in partnership with A.R.M Holding and is sponsored by Julius Baer. The art fair's strategic partner is The Dubai Culture and Arts Authority.
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the UAE will have 11 galleries where their talents will be on display.
This event falls in line with the celebration of the UAE's 50th anniversary as well as the opening of Dubai Expo in 2021. The art fair will showcase the creative side of the UAE.
There will be live art experiences to help the audience in getting a deeper understanding and perspective into the artist's mind as well as witnessing the artists creating their art live.
Art Dubai's Artistic Director Pablo del Val said, "We are thankful for the enduring support from our exhibiting galleries and trust that they have placed in us throughout the last year. Art Dubai is delighted that we have more than 90% of our galleries returning for the 14th edition, and are so proud of the diversity presented amongst the participating exhibitors. We believe in the importance of bringing communities together at physical events and as the only international art fair going forward in the first quarter of 2021, we believe there's a unique opportunity that our platform can offer to visitors who are keen to explore, discover and re-engage with the international art world."
