Art Week, the umbrella initiative that includes Art Dubai, Design Days Dubai, Sikka, showcases the broad programme of cultural events taking place across the UAE and beyond in March 2013. Art Week positions the Gulf – regionally and internationally – as a place of artistic production and home to numerous cultural centres. From expansive new museum projects in Doha to the thriving Dubai gallery scene, from one-off happenings, projects and installations to festivals and fairs, Art Week serves to demonstrate the dynamism and progressive spirit at large throughout the Gulf’s cultural scene.
Art Week actively encourages collaborations with art organisations, colleges, commercial galleries and non-commercial spaces, and helps to promote the UAE as the centre of the knowledge economy in the region, and as a home for the creative industries.
A comprehensive Art Week Guide is produced annually and made available in March at Art Dubai, Design Days Dubai, SIKKA, and all of Art Week’s participating venues including museums, festivals, galleries, and select hotels, restaurants and universities. The guide includes detailed listings, previews and maps of key areas across the region.
