What to expect?

This year Art Dubai is welcoming over 100 exhibitors – of which 30 are participating for the very first time – from 44 countries.

The programme will be a platform for art enthusiasts to examine the worlds of digital artefacts, virtual reality and crypto economies, in this day and age.

With NFTs being the topic of discussion one of the key segments will include new communities that are supporting these worlds. To understand more about the present art landscape attendees will get a 360-degree overview of the crypto-sphere and international market.


Several artists will present their work at the exhibition including Maryam Al Dabbagh. Her exhibition entitled ‘Speculative Links’ will showcase a selection of works that will lay emphasis on the UAE-based artists and their wide range of practices.

Other such installations and pieces to look at will included Cloud Seed by media artist James Clar, INLAND by Fernando Garcia-Dory who presents multi-side installations at the fair and many more leading talents, who will also provide a bridge between NFT and art.
