Art Dubai 2016 commenced today, hailing the Fair into its 10th year. A decade young the fair has matured beyond its age bringing a truly Global Event to the region. The Art is divided and showcased in different designated spaces for Modern, Contemporary, Commissioned and Sponsored projects. The energy and vibe generated by the work on display, exhibitors, and visitors of the fair is a special one on one equation, leaving no space for selections or shortlists. Simply best experienced via a sensory wander (preferably in comfortable footwear) through the expanse of the curated spaces of Madinat Jumeirah where the fair will be open to the public from March 17-19. We have collected a few frames forming the narrative of our experience, as a glimpse into what the fair holds to be experienced and discovered.
