Art Week brings together Dubai’s thriving creative industries into a week-long celebration of arts and culture.

HOME

Art Week, initiated by Art Dubai Group and supported by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) and Meraas is the region’s largest cultural festival taking place each March.

The 6th edition took place between 12 - 18 March 2017. Over 350 cultural activities took place in institutions, universities, commercial galleries, hotels and outdoor public spaces across the cities of Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai and Sharjah.

Art Dubai is the week’s anchor event, taking place at the Madinat Jumeirah. For 2017 Design Days Dubai moved to a new location in Dubai Design District (d3), highlighting the rise of d3 as a new destination where dozens of exciting new concepts have opened in recent months. Following its recent expansion, Alserkal Avenue is now home to over 70 creative spaces and this Art Week saw the launch of its multi-purpose events space Concrete and several pop-up events such as the region’s first art book fair.

Some key themes ran across different platforms, bringing continuity to the week’s programming and enriching the visitor experience. Performance art was the focus of the Art Dubai commissioned projects and was explored in The Creative Act, the second exhibition of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi collection. The role of public art across a city was highlighted by several artists and through projects such as Dubal Walls at City Walk. A number of exhibitions investigated the recent history of art production in the UAE, particularly pertinent since the passing away of Hassan Sharif in 2016.

It’s often hard to make your voice heard in the art world. Which is why for 2017 Voices invited 25+ leading practitioners to say a few words about what was important to them during Art Week.

Art Week is also active on social media channels so do follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
