Besides exhibitions, as always there are going to be discussions, exchanges among artists and enthusiasts. In particular, we want to underscore Global Art Forum 11, a relevant conference on international level which will hinge on the formal aspect of the world in a material sense.

There are many shuttles to reach the venue but you can also get there by taxi, car o metro easily. You can purchase the admission tickets with a discount online for one day or the whole period of the fair. University students with their student card are lucky as they can access for free and so those who are under 18 years old.

Music and performances will animate Art Dubai that includes its forum finis-sage started last January by Shumon Basar as Commissioner with the support of Antonia Carver and Oscar Guardiola-Rivera. Trade conceived as exchange between individuals belonging to different cultures is the core concept of Global Art Forum 11 that once again embodies global contemporary.
