Art Dubai has announced the full details of the programming and partnerships for its 17th edition, which will take place at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai from the 1st to the 3rd of March this year.

This year, the art festival will feature an expanded programme of collaborations with local and international partners, underscoring the fair’s position as the meeting point for the Global South’s creative communities and its mission to redefine the role an art fair can play in supporting local and regional ecosystems.

Complementing more than 120 presentations drawn from more than 60 cities and over 40 countries across four sections: Contemporary, Bawwaba, Art Dubai Modern and Art Dubai Digital, programme highlights will include major new commissions and premières by internationally renowned artists and the most extensive education, talks and thought-leadership programme of any international art fair.

Since its founding, Art Dubai has been committed to working with institutional and commercial partners to develop new commissioning models and long-term innovative, high-impact cultural programming. These collaborations place particular emphasis on education and digital technologies, which are cornerstones of Art Dubai’s extensive year-round programming; they play a crucial role in shaping the future of Dubai’s cultural infrastructure, as well as responding to some of the most important issues of our time.

Art Dubai Week extends beyond the fair, with world-class exhibitions and events happening in over 50 institutions, galleries and independent art spaces across the UAE.

Discussing this year’s event Pablo del Val, Art Dubai’s Artistic Director said “Art fairs like Art Dubai have a responsibility to be far more than commercial platforms and we continue to play an important institutional role in this region’s cultural ecosystem, supporting artists, scholarship, thought-leadership and cultural education from an early age. Our programme this year reflects the increasingly diverse and multicultural communities of our home city, providing more opportunities than ever for artists from across the Global South. Dubai is a place of relentless reinvention, possibility and opportunity, and these commercial and institutional partnerships are central to all our activity, supporting our world-class non-commercial programmes.”
