Date: 16th to 19th March 2016
Art Dubai is the leading international art fair in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia. The tenth edition of the fair took place March 16-19, 2016 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Art Dubai is held under the Patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai. Taking place each year in March, Art Dubai presents a select yet diverse line-up of around 90 galleries from the UAE and around the world, across three programmes: Contemporary; Modern, devoted to masters from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia; and Marker, a curated section of artspaces that focuses each year on a particular theme or geography.
This year when I attended the 10th Edition Art Dubai- VIP opening, I noticed Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the very simple and modest ruler of Dubai.
