World Art Dubai



World Art Dubai (WAD) was created to cater to Dubai’s insatiable demand for contemporary art, as personal luxury spending grows to be worth $3.3 billion and art sales reach an annual turnover of $4 million.

The upcoming third edition of World Art Dubai is set to generate real buzz amongst the booming Middle East contemporary art scene with its unique selection of over 150 international galleries and artists from five continents.

As part of Dubai’s Official Art Season, World Art Dubai reflects the city’s growing prominence as a leading cultural and artistic hub with a unique fusion of art, education and entertainment featuring a diverse collection of contemporary art work, paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs and media ranging from $100 to $20,000.
