Art Dubai 2012 will be covered by Art of the Mid East

Over the last five years, Art Dubai, the leading international art fair in the MENASA (Middle East/North Africa/South Asia), has become a cornerstone of the region’s booming contemporary art community. In 2011, Art Dubai welcomed 20,000 visitors – including 60 international museums groups – and hosted over 70 galleries from 30 countries.


 
The sixth edition of Art Dubai takes place March 21-24, 2012, at Madinat Jumeirah, and features 75 galleries from 31 countries, in addition to a new programme of artists’ and curators’ residencies, commissioned projects, performative tours, workshops, the unveiling of the works by Abraaj Capital Art Prize winners and the critically acclaimed Global Art Forum.
 
Art Dubai is part of Art Week, the umbrella initiative that includes Sikka Art Fair (organised by the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, and taking place in Al Bastakiya, March 15-25), Design Days Dubai, and a range of contemporary art and design events, major museum shows, and new gallery exhibitions and artists’ projects, taking place each March.  Art Week positions the Gulf as a place of artistic production and home to multiple cultural centres.


 
We look forward to welcoming you in March 2012.
 
The fair is held under the Patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, and is run as a joint venture between the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and Middle East Fairs Ltd.

Art Dubai Ladies’ Day, Wednesday March 21, is held under the patronage of HRH Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Women’s Establishment, Wife of HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs UAE.

    Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!
