Abu Dhabi Art fair is returning to Manarat Al Saadiyat.The annual art fair each November is the culmination of the year-round visual arts programme!
The fair brings together local and international galleries offering artworks for sale, which are shown alongside exhibitions, artist commissions and installations both at the fair and across the emirate.
The event expands beyond the notion of a traditional art fair, in placing a strong emphasis on a diverse public engagement programme, including art installations and exhibitions, talks, and events that take place in different locations throughout the year.
The sectors open for exhibitors to apply for include, Modern & Contemporary, which is open to Modern and Contemporary galleries; Special Projects, where galleries can present solo or two artist presentations; and Focus, galleries in this sector are invited to participate with specific artists chosen by a guest curator.
Abu Dhabi Art has also announced the selection of Emirati artist Farah Al Qasimi, who was recently featured in The New York Times, as this year’s visual campaign artist.$$$$$ •
