Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council and organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism—Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Art returns this year for its 15th edition in the largest iteration to date. Taking place from November 22–26 at Manarat Al Saadiyat, in Abu Dhabi’s cultural district, this year sees 92 galleries from over 31 countries, including, for the first time, galleries from Georgia, Mexico, Brazil, Singapore, and Chile.

With 37 new and 55 returning galleries, this year’s edition spotlights diverse geographies alongside curated exhibitions and commissions, positioning itself as a place of discovery for global art histories. The fair remains committed to welcoming diverse curatorial perspectives, embedding itself in the community, and playing an integral part in the art ecosystem in Abu Dhabi and the UAE.

Representing some of the participating galleries this year are: Maneli Keykavioussi, focusing on Latin America with participating galleries including Dan Galleria, Pablo Goebel Fine Arts, Praxis, Galeria Karla Osorio, Galeria La Cometa and Casa Zirio; Riccarda Mandrini focusing on sustainability with participating galleries including Kó, LIA RUMMA, THK Gallery, and ADN Galleria; Essia Hamdi, who will focus on female artists from the Arab world with galleries including Agial Art Gallery, Galerie Krinzinger and Wadi Finan Art Gallery; and Chris Wan Feng—who will bring together galleries that reflect on Hong Kong’s historical and contemporary art landscape, including Rossi & Rossi, and HANART TZ.

Among the 37 new galleries that will be present at the fair this year are LIA RUMMA (Italy), De Sarthe (Hong Kong), Leo Gallery (Hong Kong), and Pablo Goebel Fine Arts (Mexico). Abu Dhabi Art will also welcome back 55 galleries who have participated in previous editions. Returning galleries include: Gallery Isabelle Van Den Eynde (UAE), Sean Kelly (USA), Hakgojae Gallery (South Korea), Mazzoleni (Italy), HANART TZ Gallery (China), Galerie Krinzinger (Austria) and Perrotin (France), among many others.

The Modern & Contemporary section of the fair will see 40 participating galleries including Rossi & Rossi (Hong Kong), Selma Feriani Gallery (Tunisia), and Bernier/Eliades (Greece).

The artists included in Beyond Emerging Artists (BEA) 2023 are Almaha Jaralla, Samo Shalaby, and Latifa Saeed. Their commissioned pieces for Abu Dhabi Art will be presented in an exhibition curated by director of Zamân Books & Curating, Morad Montazami.

The annual Gateway exhibition, which highlights local and international artists through unique perspectives, is this year curated by Venetia Porter, who has chosen to present a survey show for Emirati painter and multi-disciplinary artist Hashel Al Lamki. The exhibition is titled Maqam, after the residential neighbourhood of Al Ain where Al Lamki grew up.

Launched in 2017, Artist Commissions in Cultural Sites sees established artists invited to create site-specific works across Abu Dhabi emirate. The works by the commissioned artists will be revealed during the fair in November and remain on show to the public for two months afterwards.

This year’s commissioned artists are Nujoom Al Ghanem and Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim, whose work will be showcased in Al Jahili Fort and Al Ain Oasis. 

The 2023 Visual Campaign Artist is Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim (represented by Lawrie Shabibi Gallery in Dubai), whose work is inspired by a deep love for the environment and natural beauty of his birthplace, Khorfakkan—nestled between the Gulf of Oman and the Hajar Mountains. The Visual Campaign Artist for the programme is tasked with creating the fair’s visual campaign, and the chosen images are then used across marketing materials to define the identity of the fair.

Abu Dhabi Art will continue to announce details of the fair’s programmes and events in the coming months.
