Sheikha Latifa said: "Art Dubai’s return this year with the highest participation in its history is a landmark moment in Dubai’s creative journey. The exceptional response it has received is a testament to the homegrown art fair’s emergence as one of the most prominent art events in the international cultural calendar and a major platform to showcase the highest creative excellence in global art. Art Dubai’s vibrant line-up of galleries and artists further reinforces Dubai’s rise as a global cultural hub that is playing a key role in shaping new creative possibilities, conversations and connections for the international art world.
During a tour of the exhibition, she was briefed on this year’s event, which features one of its most multicultural and inclusive agendas. Art Dubai has continued to develop over the years to include various new programmes, such as the newly introduced digital programme this year, which reflects Dubai’s commitment to accelerate digital transformation across various sectors, Sheikha Latifa noted.
She was briefed on the main highlights of the 15th edition of Art Dubai, which is presenting its most extensive edition to date with over 100 galleries from 44 countries from across the Global South, including a new section dedicated to digital art. The fair has become testament to Dubai’s leading role in the development of the creative landscape in the region and beyond.
Art Dubai is a flagship event of the Dubai Art Season (DAS) 2022, a unique mix of artistic and cultural events being held from February to March. The homegrown art fair supports the Dubai leadership’s vision to transform the emirate into the capital of the global creative economy.
For over 15 years, Art Dubai has been the annual meeting point for modern and contemporary art enthusiasts, developing a local collector as well as individual and corporate patron base from all over the world. Championing artists from regions which are underrepresented in established collections, the 2022 edition sees half of its exhibitors come from the Global South, with notably strong representation from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa.
