Art Dubai Modern

Art Dubai Modern presents museum-quality works by masters from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa, whose work has been influential throughout the 20th century. The section will be curated by the internationally recognised curatorial duo Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath.

Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath are Founders of Art Reoriented, a multidisciplinary curatorial platform, launched in New York and Munich in 2009. Since 2016, they are Chairmen of the Montblanc Cultural Foundation in Hamburg, and since 2017 Affiliate Curators at the Gropius Bau in Berlin. They are internationally recognized independent curators and academics, and have held teaching positions at various universities, including the London School of Economics and New York University. Award-winning authors and editors of numerous publications, they have contributed to a broad range of academic journals, books, newspapers and art magazines. Their decision to work independently as a duo over the last ten years, has allowed them to engage with a wide range of institutional models worldwide. The diversity of their cultural and academic backgrounds has enriched their inherently collaborative curatorial model. Bardaouil was born and raised in Lebanon, and holds a Master’s degree in Advanced Theater Practice and a PhD in Art History. Fellrath was born and raised in Germany, and holds two Masters degrees in Economics and Political Science, as well as a degree in Graphic Design.
