Dubai is about looking deeply enough in the city for what you seek. I seek for some fresh urban art, so be prepared to read about all the exciting events that will happen around the town.
The urban art scene in Dubai is growing rapidly and one sign of it is the DUBAI ART SEASON 2014. There are lots of workshops, art exhibits, outdoor art projects, live art and music in public spaces. Yay, I want to high five myself for being in the right place in the right time!
DUBAI ART SEASON encompasses:
Sikka Art Fair: ( March 15th – 25th) www.sikka.ae
Design Days Dubai: ( March 17th -21th) www.designdaysdubai.ae
Art Dubai: ( March 19th - 22nd) www.artdubai.ae
The Middle East Film and Comic Con: ( April 3rd - 5th) www.mefcc.com
The Gulf Film Festival: ( April 9th - 15th) www.gulffilmfest.com
To be honest, it's sometimes very difficult to find the galleries, and you could spend more then an hour in a cab looking for the locations. The best way to see art centers, studios and alternative art spaces is while you ride THE ART BUS. The Art Bus will be traveling around Dubai on three routes, which include Al Quoz, Jumeirah and the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, Downtown and DIFC. To book a seat call 04 341 7303 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The tickets are priced at AED 50 per person, per day.
