The region's largest contemporary art fair returns, in partnership with Dubai Culture, to the Dubai World Trade Centre from 2nd – 5th May

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 26 April 2024: World Art Dubai (WAD), the region's largest contemporary art fair, is set to mark its 10th edition by unveiling 12 international pavilions dedicated to showcasing the vibrant artistic diversity from countries and regions around the world. From 2nd to 5th May 2024, art enthusiasts will have the opportunity to explore artworks from different pavilions, including the UAE, America, Asia, China, Europe, GCC, India, Iran, Japan, Russia, and the UK, highlighting the universal language of art that transcends borders.

The fair, held at Dubai World Trade Centre in partnership with Dubai Culture, will feature over 4,000 artworks from over 65 countries presenting a dynamic snapshot of Dubai's unique blend of local and international influences and reinforcing the city's position as an arts powerhouse for the Global South, elevating the global positioning of WAD

The international pavilions also stand as cultural gateways, each offering a unique window into the country or region's artistic heritage and contemporary creativity. From the traditional to the avant-garde, these pavilions curate a rich tapestry of artistic expressions, underscoring the universal language of art that unites us all. Each pavilion is a testament to the global nature of World Art Dubai and its commitment to fostering cultural exchange and appreciation, as well as adding positive economic impact to a city where 9% of the GDP comes from tourism.

World Art Dubai's landmark 10th edition will showcase a diverse array of pavilions and artists from around the world including:

UAE and GCC Pavilion Highlights:

The UAE and GCC Pavilions will spotlight both the talent of residents who call Dubai home and talented citizens, demonstrating how the two populations exist and interact through their creative drives. These artists include Daria Avdeeva, Javeria Khan and Francine Kaspar, presenting their vibrant artworks that harmoniously blend classical techniques with contemporary interpretations, reflecting the UAE's multicultural identity. Additionally, Hend Rashed, a Dubai-based abstract artist, will present her dynamic creations. With a repertoire spanning seven years at prestigious exhibitions worldwide, including in Singapore, Oman and Italy, Rashed's artistry has earned her nominations for the UAE Residence Artist Award by World Art Dubai for three consecutive years.

Coming from further afield in the region Bahraini artist Leena Al Ayoobi, Iraqi artist Nabil Ali, and Lebanese artist Lydia Moawad will bring their unique artistic visions, blending cultural influences and personal experiences to create compelling artworks that demonstrate the wide variety of styles and cultural influences that exist in Middle Eastern art.

Representing Diverse Global Regions:

The pavilions of World Art Dubai feature artistic fusion among cultures, continents, and art schools that converge in Dubai from diverse global regions. The Europe Pavilion, curated by Tablinum Cultural Management, presents innovative contemporary art, with artists like Tatiana Kramarenko, Follow Med, and Petr Shebarshin exploring themes of chaos, spirituality, and life's profundity. China's presence, facilitated by Artaflo Collective from Hong Kong, reflects the belief in art as a universal language. India's offering showcases the dynamic art scene through Sanuj Birla's pop art, Raihan R Vadra's immersive installations, and Niyati Parekh's art and interior design.

Japan Promotion's 'Japan Tide' project presents a curated blend of traditional and contemporary Japanese arts. The Russia Pavilion, featuring Igor Kirillov and IMMI Art, offers immersive experiences in romantic hyperrealism. Iran's pavilion, represented by Ronas Gallery and Negara Group, highlights the vibrant contemporary art scene. Insights from America, Asia, and the UK, including contributions from the Museum of Modern Renaissance, Art Muse Gallery, and Lenny Lopes, respectively, offer fresh perspectives and innovative approaches to art.

Asma Al Sharif, Assistant Vice President at Exhibitions, Dubai World Trade Centre, said: 'World Art Dubai's 10th edition underscores our commitment to making art accessible and celebrating the diversity of the global art scene. The 12 international pavilions serve as portals, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in a vibrant mosaic of artistic expressions and explore a rich tapestry from around the world.'

Spotlight on Legacy and Innovative Artists:

Notable legacy exhibitors include Japan Promotion and Art Plus Photographers Production who have been loyal exhibitors at the fair for the past eight years, highlighting their longstanding commitment to World Art Dubai. Alongside them, new artists like Rinko Lim and Liz Ramos-Prado bring fresh perspectives to the Dubai art scene.

Rinko Lim uniquely blends art, design, and energy therapy, harnessing her experiences from the United States to delve into themes of self-discovery and spiritual wellness. Meanwhile, Liz Ramos-Prado seamlessly merges graphic design with fine art, bridging the gap between commercial and personal artistic expressions. With a decade-long career in the UAE's media and design landscape, Ramos-Prado's work delves into the intricacies of human emotion.
