World Art Dubai is back and bigger than ever

Event at World Trade Centre is showcasing works from around the world


Art season in Dubai is well and truly underway and the arrival of World Art Dubai is making culture in the city more accessible than ever.

The fair at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) is a curation of more than 4,000 inspirational artworks from over 300 artists and galleries from five continents – and the pieces are off the charts.

The fourth season of the fair kicks off on Wednesday April 18 and will run until Saturday April 21 with the largest collection to date, featuring more local, regional and international artists than ever and showcasing phenomenal talent from around the world.

And not only will you be able to peruse and admire said installations, you will also be able to take them home.

Artworks are priced between Dhs350 and Dhs74,000, so whether you’re sprucing up your studio or a palace, there are interesting and unique pieces to take centre-stage in your abode.

The show, which will close this year’s Dubai Art Season, is expected to attract more than 15,000 people over the four days and will feature special installations to mark the Year of Zayed, including a dedicated photography museum.

The event is intended to be a more chic and urban experience than in previous years, and visitors can expect new sections including a digital art display.

Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Exhibitions & Events Management at DWTC, said, “World Art Dubai offers a completely unique proposition in the domestic and regional art scene.

“The show is a one-off platform for emerging and established artists and galleries across the globe to come together in an affordable environment which appeals to both new and seasoned art collectors.

“Fusing art, education and entertainment, World Art Dubai is expertly curated to offer compelling creative and sales points for the UAE’s passionate population of art lovers, corporate buyers, private collectors, architects, interior designers and VIPs alike.”
