For the first time, Art Dubai Modern will offer the opportunity to see galleries present tightly curated collective exhibitions, in addition to solo and two-artist shows.

The fair’s 2018 edition will also see the launch of Residents, a one-of-a-kind 4-8 week residency programme for international artists, invited to the UAE to immerse themselves in the local art scene, to create a body of work which merges their distinct artistic practice with their

surroundings. The final works will be on show in the new section of the fair, presented by the artists’ respective galleries.
