World Art Dubai

World Art Dubai
Dubai Culture is a government initiative designed to promote cultural exchange and innovation as well as to present Dubai on the global cultural map. Launched in 2008 by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the vice president and prime minister of the UAE and Emir of Dubai, it presents a variety of projects and activities. World Art Dubai is one of them.

World Art Dubai is an annual trade fair for modern art showcasing inspirational, accessible and affordable art. The fair was founded in 2015 to bring together regional and global artists and galleries from different countries and to introduce them to Middle Eastern art lovers. The first event was a success so it was decided to make it an annual affair.

World Art Dubai is part of Dubai Art Season, an umbrella arts initiative of the city of Dubai which aims to highlight the growing creative landscape of the UAE at the international level. The show is managed and hosted by the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), the largest convention and exhibition center in the region with an impressive experience of hosting world-class events and promoting innovation within the exhibition industry.

The World Art Dubai fair features both established and up-and-coming artists as well as the finest galleries from different countries, showcasing a rich and diverse collection of contemporary and modern art from all over the world. It combines art, entertainment and education into a unique and exciting fusion which helps to reflect the growing prominence of Dubai as one of the world’s leading artistic and cultural hubs.

Along with an exhibition featuring around 150 local, regional and international galleries and artists, the program of World Art Dubai includes art talks, creative learning workshops for children and adults, live painting sessions, live entertainment, and other educational and cultural activities held over four days.

Most of the works showcased at World Art Dubai (including paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs and much more) are available for purchase at affordable prices ranging from $100–10,000.
