ART DUBAI CONTEMPORARY

Art Dubai Contemporary welcomes applications from commercial galleries around the world that operate in the primary market and have been established for at least two years. This section features presentations in spaces ranging from 25-80 m2. Final selections will be based on the curatorial strength of the gallery programme, the submitted proposal and congruity with Art Dubai's identity. Art Dubai Contemporary applications will be reviewed by the Art Dubai Selection Committee.

Art Dubai Modern is a one of a kind platform, focusing on Modern art from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia which will showcase works by Modern masters from the 20th century (up to the year 2000). Proposals should feature presentations in spaces ranging from 25-60 m2, dedicated to a particular period or thematic dialogue. Art Dubai\'s Advisory Committee will continue to select participants for Art Dubai Modern.
