UAE Previews: March 2020

Art Dubai—the major Middle East art fair around which the United Arab Emirates’ annual art week revolves—may have been indefinitely postponed due to Covid-19, but organizers are promising an engaging, if smaller, program of talks and gallery presentations focused on the local arts ecosystem to take place during the fair’s original run dates. With various exhibitions at art spaces and commercial galleries opening as planned, there will still be plenty for art aficionados to see in Dubai and nearby Sharjah this month.
