Whilst the last year has brought up many challenges and issues inherent in the art world, it has also raised opportunities to solve these. This pandemic has shown us that our way forward is through collaboration, adaptation and innovation.

For any society to blossom, culture must be part of its DNA, must be integral to its aspirations for progression and development. Abu Dhabi Art will take part in physical format this year not despite, but because of the challenges that have faced the art eco-system during the pandemic, because it has been able to adapt and still contribute to cultural growth and to the art market in these challenging times, returning in renewed form. We look forward to welcoming visitors and community back to the fair this November.”

This year Abu Dhabi Art will be also showcasing several new commissioned installations at locations throughout the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
