Dubai's Emergence As An Art And Culture Hub In 2023

The programme and partnerships for Art Dubai's 16th edition have been announced. The expanded 2023 programme includes an ambitious and multi-strand conference, talks, and education program, reinforcing Dubai's emergence as an art and culture hub and significant contributor to global conversations about contemporary art.


Art Dubai 2023 will take place at Madinat Jumeirah from March 3 to 5, 2023, with previews on March 1 and 2, 2023. Art Dubai's expanded 2023 programme, created in collaboration with local and international cultural partners, reaffirms the premier art fair's role as a meeting place for the creative industries and communities of the Global South. Site-specific commissions and premieres by renowned international artists, presented in collaboration with the region's leading institutions, are highlights of the 2023 programme.


Julius Baer has extended its partnership with Art Dubai for another five years, until 2027. Refik Anadol, a new media artist and pioneer in the aesthetics of machine intelligence, will premiere a newly commissioned artwork for the Swiss wealth management group. The commission will make its debut in Dubai as part of Julius Baer's new NEXT initiative, which will encourage interdisciplinary exploration of megatrends in the arts, science, and technology. UAE First Immersion, a presentation of new artworks created following the November 2022 visit to the UAE by some of the world's leading names in digital art, will also make its debut at the fair.


Pablo del Val, Art Dubai’s Artistic Director, said: “As the global art fair landscape shifts, Art Dubai continues to play an important role in profiling and supporting the cultural ecosystems of the Global South. The 2023 programme fully reflects this region’s growing importance, energy and vibrancy. One of our strongest ever gallery line-ups, complemented by an expanded commissioning and thought-leadership programme, highlights the breadth of discourse happening here and offers a glimpse into this important region’s past, present and future.”


Lian Foundation, founded by a private collector, patron, and expert in Blockchain Technology Fiorenzo Manganiello; 6529 with their decentralised Open Metaverse project; and UAE First Immersion, a presentation of new artworks by some of the leading names in crypto art created after their first visit to the UAE in November 2022, presented in collaboration with MORROW Collective. New works by artists such as Coldie, Colborn Bell, Moneris, Bryan Brinkman, Kirk Finkel, and Raphael Torres will be on display. The works will be available to collectors first at Art Dubai 2023.
