World Art Dubai Celebrates Emerging Artists

World Art Dubai Celebrates Emerging Artists

In partnership with Rove Hotels, the World Art Dubai Emerging Visual Artists Prize will return to the show floor for its second year. Following last year’s success, 10 shortlisted emerging artists stand the chance to win exhibition space at World Art Dubai 2021 and Rove Hotels’ properties.

The theme that we will be proceeding with will be ‘across borders’ inspired by Expo 2020.

The competition will be judged by World Art Dubai curator, Petra Kaltenbach; Emerging Scene founder, Rebia Naim; and the Rove Hotels team.

Additionally, art fanatics are invited to vote online for their favourite artwork via .
