Art Dubai 2015
& collect
This year I again visited Dubai to browse Art Dubai 2015. Now being the hottest art market hub in the Middle East, Dubai is attracting more up-and-coming galleries from the Arab region and India while retaining exhibitors from the U.S. and Europe from its past events. This year I found less socially engaging art and more projects incorporating space and design. Here is a selection of artworks which for me represent the mood of the region at the moment.
