Art Dubai’s Response to COVID-19





On behalf of all of us at Art Dubai, we offer our heartfelt sympathy to those who have been affected by the pandemic and our deep gratitude to those who are working tirelessly to keep us safe. This is a difficult time for everyone and we would sincerely like to thank our friends, partners and stakeholders for their valued support during this period.

Despite the challenges we face, at Art Dubai we are more determined than ever to support our community of artists, galleries, institutions and collectors and as the world changes, so Art Dubai will adapt and adjust to prepare ourselves for what our “new world” might bring.

At present it is impossible to predict exactly what the environment will be for Art Dubai in March 2021, however we gain great encouragement from efforts made by the federal authorities in the UAE in addressing the threats of COVID 19 and as we prepare for all eventualities, we shall also add new elements to our cultural programming whilst finding new ways to support our galleries. These will include

  • A series of solo-artist online exhibitions showcasing Art Dubai’s unique identity as portal to the discovery of art from the Global South.
  • A focus on art produced in the UAE
  • New support initiatives that provide participating galleries with connections to collecting and institutional communities across the year
  • A unique collaborative payment model for participating galleries

This is the beginning and we look forward to announcing more details and initiatives soon that we hope will turn this challenging time into one of opportunity. Please follow us on our Instagram account @artdubai for updates and please do not hesitate to share your thoughts and suggestions with us on info@artdubai.ae.

With best regards,

The Art Dubai team
