Art Dubai 2020 reaffirms commitment to alternative global perspectives with the announcement of gallery list, new Africa focus for Residents section, and a line-up of international curators.

Art Dubai’s 14th edition features galleries from 38 countries across four gallery sections and will take place March 25-28, 2020, at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai.

2020 program reaffirms Art Dubai’s position as the region’s major international meeting point of ideas, bringing together exciting new global perspectives from geographies not often brought to the fore.

Residents, curated by Johannesburg-based Kabelo Malatsie, will focus on the African continent, leading visitors through an exploratory experience of artwork created specifically for the fair through a UAE-based residency.

Art Dubai Modern is the largest edition to date, curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, showcasing solo presentations of Modern masters from across the MENASA region who are often overlooked in the western canon. Bawwaba — meaning ‘gateway’ in Arabic — curated by Bombay-based curator Nancy Adajania, showcases solo presentations by artists from, based in, and/or focused on projects about the Middle East, Africa, Central, South, and Southeast Asia and Latin America.

Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Art Dubai announces the full list of participating galleries for its 14th edition. With 90 galleries from 38 countries, the fair showcases an exceptionally diverse survey of artworks, artists, and artistic practices, further cementing Art Dubai as the key meeting point for international art, reflecting the multicultural identity of the city.

Art Dubai 2020 reaffirms its commitment to fostering a platform of discovery, presenting exciting new global perspectives, and expanding conversations beyond traditional Western-led geographical scopes.

The upcoming edition of the fair welcomes 21 first-time exhibitors, including galleries from Nigeria, Sudan, and Vietnam, and will feature the largest selection of galleries from around the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia (MENASA) to date.

Andi Arnovitz – Medical Exploration

"There are certain elements of the human form that immediately denote ” female.” The pelvis certainly suggests fertility, the womb, the center of life in its most graphic simplicity. Playing with this form, with bones that feel like lace, with blood that is at once terrifying and beautiful, I draw attention to the female form and its cycles". -Andi Arnovitz
