Art Dubai 2010
Over the last three years Art Dubai has created a defining platform for current art practice in the Middle East, setting the business of art within a context that is intelligent, stimulating and relevant. Earlier this year, Art Dubai’s third edition attracted an audience of over 14,000 visitors from across the Middle East, South Asia and beyond, including leading curators, museum directors, artists, 80 museum groups and over 300 international press.

Next March we look forward to welcoming guests to the beachside setting of Madinat Jumeirah for the fourth edition of Art Dubai. Featuring a dynamic roster of international and regional galleries, Global Art Forum_4, the Abraaj Capital Art Prize, Art Park and Contemparabia, Art Dubai 2010 offers visitors the most extensive programme of contemporary art exhibitions and events to date.
