The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT) has shared the news that Abu Dhabi Art will be going ahead this year, but for the first time, it will be a digital event.
What will be the twelfth Abu Dhabi Art will take place between November 19 and November 26 and in another festival first, will be curated by a team of six industry luminaries.

The broad brushstrokes of exactly how it will work have not yet been released, but going on previous examples, we should probably expect a series of talks, performances, showcases of local talent and special commissioned works.
Despite the problems posed by the pandemic, Abu Dhabi Art has not been silenced this year. Collector’s Forum summer collection of talks, organised by Roxane Zand, included topics such as Collecting Post-Covid; The Future of Art and Artists; Dialogues Between the Artist and Nature; and Globalism and Art Collecting: The Case of the Middle East and South Asia.
