The annual Art Week in March is a series of events in Dubai and the UAE full of events, performances, exhibitions, installations and festivals. My first March in Dubai, and I found out the hard way: there is simply too much to do, and nearly impossible to cover it all, so here is a selection.
The UAE, especially Dubai, has positioned itself as a hub for the region, for decades. From the establishment of Emirates Airlines in the mid 1980’s, to bigger, better airports, newer airlines, to regional exhibitions, conferences, and events such as Art Dubai. Each year since 2007 when it was inaugurated, the art world meets in Dubai to document and to explore, explain, and enjoy art.
