Art Dubai Contemporary

Art Dubai Contemporary is extraordinarily diverse. The 2018 fair featured 78 galleries from 42 countries, from the world’s most influential galleries to dynamic young art spaces. Likewise, the artists ranged from emerging and upcoming practitioners from lesser-known art capitals to household names. The works they presented covered all artistic media—including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, photography and performance.

Art Dubai 2019 Applications will be online from May 2018.


All applications are reviewed by Art Dubai’s Selection Committee, comprised of gallerists and guest curators. The committee discusses each application, basing their final selection on the curatorial strength of the gallery exhibition programme and the gallery’s submitted proposal.
