Must Visit Dubai Art Events

  • Publish Date-


Art Dubai, which began in 2007, is now in its 14th iteration. It has evolved into one of the most important meeting places for art and commerce in the Middle East throughout the years. Our industry, like so many others, has been severely hit by the events of the last year, and we thought it was our obligation to help our communities during Benedetta Ghione, executive director of Art Dubai, says, "These hard times."

JR, Bharti Kher, and Anish Kapoor at Galerie Perrotin: Mapping Histories:

Galerie Perrotin will show new sculptures by Daniel Arsham, Johan Creten, Takashi Murakami, Xavier Veilhan, and Jean-Michel Othoniel, as well as recent paintings by Jean-Philippe Delhomm, Lee Bae, Bharti Kher, and Thilo Heinzmann, as well as works by Hans Hartung from the 1970s and Anish Kapoor, for its Art Dubai debut. A collection of JR pictures from the project "JR at the Louvre and the Great Pyramid's Secret" will be on exhibit. JR is one of France's most controversial artists, known for his street comments. He had produced a collaborative piece of art the size of the Napoleonic court for the Louvre Pyramid's 30th anniversary. Three years after making the Pyramid vanish, the artist gave the renowned landmark a fresh lease on life by assembling a massive collage with the aid of 400 volunteers. Hundreds of volunteers stepped up each day to assist cut and paste the 2000 strips of paper, making it the artist's largest pasting project to date.

Jitish Kallat's Timeless Touch at Galerie Templon:

The gigantic sculptures of Jitish Kallat are synonymous with his never-ending fascination with concepts of transience and temporality. Kallat returns to Art Dubai 2021 as part of Galerie Templon's portfolio with a magnetic gestural piece titled 'Palindrome Anagram Paintings. Forms begin to emerge from flotsam of gestural abstraction. Evocations of the corporeal, botanical, sub-oceanic, and cosmic all intermingle and exchange energy."

AKKA Project: Africa Rising:

African art is a topic of discussion across the world. At the AKKA Project, a contemporary gallery with a specific focus on African art, visitors to Art Dubai 2021 will be able to view the famous African variety. Filipe Branquinho is from Mozambique, and his graphic details reveal his passion for fusing history and mythology with reality and modern dynamics. The artist, who studied architecture before turning to paint, will present new work from the 'LIPIKO' series. They were designed as a sarcastic commentary on current behaviour and ideals and were influenced by the sea and connected with the Makonde masks.

Yoruba Tribal Joys: TAFFETA Gallery:

For more African art, visit the TAFETA gallery, where three modern Nigerian artists, Nkechi Ebubedike, Niyi Olagunju, and Babajide Olatunji, are exhibiting their work in the 'Ghost Booth.' The huge artwork by Ebubedike, who lives in New York, is part of her continuing 'Pan African Avatar' series, which examines the notion of masking, veiling, and taboos. 'Woman with Diamond' (2020) is an effort to depict how women balance or are overwhelmed by, the weight of emotion and desire. Ebubedike's work achieves a strange equilibrium between modern sculpture's materiality and 18th-century European painting.

Notions of Memory: Biraaj Dodiya, Ayesha Sultana:

Experimenter from Kolkata has been exhibiting at Art Dubai for a decade. Ayesha Sultana, Biraaj Dodiya, Radhika Khimji, Prabhakar Pachpute, and Praneet Soi are among the artists exhibiting this year. The series addresses a number of topics and motifs typical of the exhibiting artists, all of which are rooted in concepts of transience and time as seen through the prism of memory and lived experiences. 

Rina Banerjee's Immigrant Experience at Galerie Nathalie Obadia:

"We opted to participate in Art Dubai 2021 this year because we saw that Dubai has become an obvious crossroads of contemporary art," explains gallerist Nathalie Obadia. The Galerie Nathalie Obadia, based in Paris and Brussels, is bringing pieces by Youssef Nabil, Brook Andrew, and Rina Banerjee, among others, to their Art Dubai exhibit. Nabil, who was born in Egypt and now lives in New York, started his photographic career in 1992 by arranging tableaux in which his subjects played out melodramas reminiscent of film stills as a homage to the golden age of cinema.

'Growing Like A Tree' by the Ishara Art Foundation is a photographic feast:

Ishara Art Foundation's 'Growing Like A Tree' (on view until May 20) looks at photography as a locus in an expanded field of art that includes videos, books, and Through a visual and aural exploration of location, memory, and culture, the artist investigates regional histories of image-making.
