Art Dubai announced today that its 2020 iteration is postponed until further notice, citing the ongoing global health implications of the Corona virus. What was going to be the 14th edition of the international art fair was scheduled to take place from 25 till 28 March 2020.
Instead, a new format is planned to run on the same dates, and will feature events, exhibitions, talks and parts of the existing Art Dubai program. These will include local and regional gallery presentations, Global Art Forum, Residents and Campus Art Dubai.
“Given the essential role the fair plays in promoting local and regional artists, we have made the decision to stage a program tailored to the local cultural community instead, including existing fair program contributors and thought-leaders,” read a release. The goals and ambitions for this revised program will soon be announced and their objective will remain to support the local community and create critical engagement with Dubai’s art ecosystem.
