Representing countries from all four corners of the globe, including a wide array from the region, the five-day-event will see countries including Italy, Colombia, South Korea, Denmark, and India descend upon the Arab peninsula to showcase their homegrown talents and flaunt their distinctive artistic vision.
“Since the first fair in 2007, Abu Dhabi Art has played an integral role in the art eco-system in Abu Dhabi and the wider emirates, fueling the appetite for art in the region, Dyala Nusseibeh, director of Abu Dhabi Art, said in a released statement, adding, “Over the years, we have not only succeeded in bolstering the growth of the country’s cultural and creative industries but also in nurturing homegrown talent.”
This year, organizers will also be welcoming Tunisian art historian Rachida Triki, Turkish gallerist Jade Yeşim Turanlı, and Italian arts journalist Riccarda Mandrini as special guests and curators of the esteemed event.
“Through collaborations with guest curators such as Rachida Triki, Jade Yeşim Turanlı, and Riccarda Mandrini, we also continue to enable diverse perspectives to be present at the fair, ensuring that Abu Dhabi Art continues to be a place of discovery for our art collectors and wider public,” Nusseibeh said.
Set to become the art fair’s biggest and richest edition so far, the celebration of art and culture is one you want to make sure not to miss if ever around the Emirates in the months to come.
