MODERN

Art Dubai Modern features presentations by modern masters of the 20th Century showcased alongside the Contemporary section, with an aim to contextualise the historical narrative being played out across the booths.

BAWWABA

Bawwaba, meaning gateway in Arabic, serves as a portal to discovery of works created in the past year or specifically for the fair, offering visitors a curated reading of current artistic developments across wide geographical scopes via ambitious solo artist presentations.


Bawwaba will return to Art Dubai for its second edition, curated by Bombay-based cultural theorist and curator Nancy Adajania.

RESIDENTS

Residents showcases solo presentations from invited galleries whose artists partake in a six-week residency in the UAE, encouraging artists to immerse themselves in the local art scene and driving meaningful engagement with the rich cultural heritage and contemporary art practices of the region.


In its third iteration at Art Dubai 2020, Residents will focus on contemporary art production from the African continent and is curated by Johannesburg-based independent curator Kabelo Malatsie.
