Art Dubai

Two videos produced during my stay in Dubai to attend the 8th Edition of the Middle-East’s biggest art fair Art Dubai — published in Ahram Online


The 8th Art Dubai, hosted in Madinet Jumeirah, features works by over 500 artists estimated to be worth $40-45 million.

The works on display are divided between Modern, Marker and Contemporary halls.

There are more than 70 galleries exhibiting new works in the Art Dubai Contemporary exposition hailing from the world over. Marker, a dynamic programme of invited art spaces that is dedicated to showcasing a different theme or geographical location each year, and which focused on West Africa in last year’s edition of the fair, zooms in on art from Central Asia and the Caucasus. Markeris curated by Slavs and Tartars this year.

This year’s fair programme features an unprecedented showcase of Middle Eastern and South Asian modern art dating back to the twentieth century. Art Dubai Modern,features 11 galleries, includes Cairo’s very own Karim Francis gallery, which showcases the works of painter Hamed Abdalla and sculptor Adam Henein.

The photography coverage I produced was a set of 20 photos of the event, published in Ahram Online.
