The Eleventh Art Dubai takes place in mid-march at the Madinat Jumeirah and at various locations across the City. Art Dubai is one of the regions biggest international Art Fairs, showcasing artworks from over 90 galleries form the UAE and around the world.
I have been along to take in some of the works on show for a number of years now and I can assure you the fair never fails to disappoint, with such an large number of galleries exhibiting, there is certainly something for everyone.
This year's program highlights includes:
The Global Art Forum, titled 'Trading Places' - which will explore the relationship between the economy of goods and ideas that constantly shape who and where we are.
The Modern Symposium a series of talks and presentations by renowned curators, scholars and patrons which will focus on the life, work and cultural impact of 20th century masters from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa.
