For the past decade, the Art Dubai Group has played a key role in the Emirate’s journey towards becoming a leading global destination for arts and design through producing the highly successfully and internationally recognized annual art and design fairs and festivals – Art Dubai, Downtown Design, Art Week and Dubai Design Week

Art Dubai Modern is the fair’s gallery section presenting museum-quality works by 20th Century masters from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa. Accompanying the gallery section is Art Dubai Modern Symposium which this year, under the title of ‘Cultural Hubs of Modernism’, attempts to map out the cultural shifts and trends instigated by modernity in four key cities in the Middle East and South Asia during the 20th century – Baghdad, Beirut, Dakar and Lahore – in a new 60-minute ‘masterclass’ format.

This year, Art Dubai Modern has been moved from the halls in Mina A’Salam to within the main gallery halls, alongside Art Dubai Contemporary, with an aim to contextulaise the historical narrative being played out across the booths. Art Dubai introduces the 11 galleries that exhibit this year.

Following on from last year’s theme of automation, Global Art Forum 2019 unites a diverse cast of global minds – from renowned curators and critics to educationalists and entrepreneurs – under the theme of “School is a Factory?” to address some of the urgent challenges and opportunities facing education today.
