The fair will present a programme of exhibitions, art installations by leading international artists.
The 11th edition of Abu Dhabi Art will take place at Manarat Al Saadiyat in the UAE capital from 21st to 23rd November this year, with multidisciplinary artist and writer Ebtisam Abdulaziz selected for the fair’s visual campaign.
Organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi, the fair will present a programme of exhibitions, art installations, talks, workshops and performances delivered by leading international artists, curators and creative professionals, in addition to a rich roster of public programming over its three-day run. On view through 25th January, 2020, the fair will offer a series of extended exhibitions and events.
Abdulaziz will expand on her ongoing initiative 'Life in a Bag' in which she documents the various bags of fair-goers.
Commenting on her participation this year, Abdulaziz stated, "Working with Abu Dhabi Art is a unique opportunity, and the event itself has inspired my new series; it documents visitors' bags from Abu Dhabi Art 2018, reflecting the diverse cultures and personalities it brings together. I think of them as portraits; through these items, culture, personality, social life, and different tastes are captured. I am very grateful to Abu Dhabi Art for their support and consider it an honour that my artwork will serve as the advertising and artistic visual campaign for the upcoming fair."
As part of Abu Dhabi Art’s year-round programme, Galleries at MAS will take place next month giving first-time collectors and art enthusiasts the chance to purchase affordable artwork.
