Art Dubai enjoys its status as one of the world’s most international art fairs. It has been a proper launch pad and development platform for artists, both upcoming and established. The 17th edition of this fair promises to build on these ideals and drive significant engagement with the art practices of the region.

Confirmed highlights of the 2024 Art Dubai fair include a collection of artist presentations called ‘Bawwaba’, a spotlight of less-famous pioneers of art from the south, a showcase of technology in tandem with art, a UAE-artist exhibition, the annual Global Art Forum that is set to discuss the effects of weather change, a DJ festival called Art Dubai After Dark, Piaget’s House of Gold, and a new commission by Sara Naim.

In addition to this spectacular line-up of events, the fair will foster a dynamic art ecology, serving as a base for both the casual and hardcore art enthusiast. It will also be accessible to people of all ages, with the likes of workshops and interviews all planned for the three-day festival.

The diverse nature of both the art and its various forms at Art Dubai will make for a grand exhibition that draws out admiration in abundance. Like its predecessors, this 17th edition looks set to foster a gathering that operate as the heartbeat of artistic production in the country.
