PREDICTING THE PRESENT
WELCOME AND INTRODUCTION
By Global Art Forum Commissioner Shumon Basar
FASHION AS EARLY WARNING SYSTEM
Head of Editorial Content, VOGUE JAPAN Tiffany Godoy and Global Art Forum Commissioner Shumon Basar
Because of its reach, fashion is said to not only express the present moment but actually embody it. Tiffany Godoy shares her uniquely informed insights into fashion’s next seismic evolutions, through the prisms of media, technology and markets.
PRESENT DIGITAL (PART 2)
CEO and Co-Founder of TRLab Audrey Ou and Curator and Founder of NFT Asia Clara Peh
Hosted by Founder of Tropical Futures Institutes Chris Fussner
What are the latest forces shaping digital art and NFT innovation? Audrey Ou and Clara Peh share stories with Chris Fussner from the frontline of Web3 cultural production and communities, and delve into Art Dubai Digital’s participants, projects and initiatives.
UNDERSTANDING PREDICTING MEDIA
Critic and Co-Founder of New Models Caroline Busta and Co-Founder of New Models, Director and Music Producer Lil Internet
What could possibly come after social media: Recommendation media? Community-as-media? Web3 decentralised anti-social media? New Models chart the contours of the media-maximalist 2010s — a decade of endless podcasts, streams and sensational takes — in order to point us to where the rest of the 2020s could venture next.
Artist Ahaad Alamoudi and artist Shuang Li
Hosted by Art Critic and Researcher Nadine Khalil
What is the relationship between identity and heritage? Does technology elicit new narratives of the self and of the nation state? What is the resolution of truth? Ahaad Alamoudi and Shuang Li are two of today’s most exciting young artists. They weave novel, witty narratives based around their cultures — Saudi Arabian and Chinese, respectively — articulated in the native languages of online characters.

ART DUBAI PORTRAITS
Lebanese artist Samir Sayegh is a pioneer of modernism in the Arab world. His practice is driven by his interest in the formal power of letters; Sayegh was a pioneer in seperating Arabic calligraphy from its contextual language in an effort to create a universal visual language.Read more
Lebanese artist Ali Cherri doesn’t believe in creative inspiration; he thinks art takes work, time, and patience. His work is largely impacted by the framework of growing up in civil war, highlighting questions of death, heritage, war and critical thought about the world and context within which we live.Read more
Sherin Guirguis’s contemporary practice aims to evolve traditional sacred geometry into a new visual language that seeks to tell stories and personal narratives. She works almost exclusively on paper, and is particularly interested in the history and embodied politics of working exclusively with this medium.Read more
Moroccan artist Meriem Bennani’s work applies humour and surreal approaches to subjects that are often considered taboo. Most recently, her digital characters serve as a vehicle through which to comment on social, political and cultural experiences through conversations that are relevant and reflective of the times we live in.Read more
