Bawwaba, meaning ‘gateway’ in Arabic, is curated by Emiliano Valdés, Chief Curator of the Museum of Modern Art, Medellin and Associate Curator for the 10th Gwangju Biennale.

This section will present 10 solo presentations featuring artworks created within the past year or conceived for the fair. Bawwaba will showcase artists from the Global South who think of art as a place of reckoning and healing, confronting social and political issues, engaging in critical dialogue, and creating a sense of community and belonging.

Through a variety of mediums, these artists explore art as a catalyst for change, transformation, and healing, and the section will investigate how these processes change across regions.

Art Dubai Modern is curated by Dr Christianna Bonin, Assistant Professor of Art History at the American University of Sharjah. The section will highlight the cultural dynamics that gave rise to today’s Global South.

The post-World War II geopolitical landscape of these regions created intricate cultural links, in particular for the many artists who studied in Soviet metropoles through Cold War-era exchanges. Reflecting the polyphonic nature of these relations, this section will encompass artists from Central and South Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.
