Art Dubai 2019 comes to its 13th edition and will be held between 20 March – 23 March on Madinat Jumeirah. The event is highly regarded in the international art world and provides a platform for emerging talent, showcasing them alongside firmly established centres and well-known artists.
Julius Baer, the leading Swiss private banking group, is the official financial sponsor of the Art Dubai contemporary section since 2015 and is a long-standing supporter of the arts across the world.
The 13th edition will feature galleries from 42 countries across four rooms, with the new gallery section, Bawwaba, displaying solo works from artists in the Middle East, Central and South Asia, Africa and Latin America.
This year’s Global Art Forum, titled ‘School is a factory?’, explores the landscape of contemporary education and learning.
Through Art Dubai Contemporary, art enthusiasts can explore works from the world’s most influential galleries as well as dynamic young art spaces; covering all artistic media such as painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, photography and performance. Art Dubai Modern presents museum-quality work by masters from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa, whose art has been influential throughout the 20th century. The event will also feature an array of pop-up restaurants for the whole family, along with interactive workshops and tours designed for children. NTS Radio is curating a special after-dark music programme for the occasion, while interactive art installations and daily live performances will enhance the overall experience.
