Art Week, initiated by Art Dubai Group and supported by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority and Dubai Design District, is a central week-long event in the region’s cultural calendar, playing an important role in bringing together and showcasing the creative achievements and ambitions from Dubai and its neighbouring cities.
In 2016 Art Week featured more than 350 events, including Art Dubai, Design Days Dubai, the Global Art Forum, SIKKA Art Fair, as well as Art Nights at Gate Village, Alserkal Avenue’s Programmes and the Galleries Night, RCA Secret Dubai. The wider programme of shows and initiatives, all contributed to establish Dubai as an essential meeting point firmly-positioned on the global art map, with artists, galleries and cultural institutions continuing to build international audiences of intellectuals, professionals, collectors, patrons and enthusiasts.
