Abu Dhabi Art Announces Dates and Commissioned Artist for its 11th Edition

The 11th edition of Abu Dhabi Art will take place at Manarat Al Saadiyat (MAS) in the UAE capital from 21-23 November this year, with multidisciplinary artist and writer Ebtisam Abdulaziz selected for the fair’s visual campaign.

Organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), the fair will present a programme of exhibitions, art installations, talks, workshops and performances delivered by leading international artists, curators and creative professionals, in addition to a rich roster of public programming over its three-day run. On view through 25 January 2020, the fair will offer a series of extended exhibitions and events.

Commissioned artist and writer Ebtisam Abdulaziz will expand on her ongoing initiative Life in a Bagin which she documents the various bags of fair-goers. On her participation this year, Ebtisam Abdulaziz stated: “Working with Abu Dhabi Art is a unique opportunity, and the event itself has inspired my new series; it documents visitors’ bags from Abu Dhabi Art 2018, reflecting the diverse cultures and personalities it brings together. I think of them as portraits; through these items, culture, personality, social life, and different tastes are captured. I am very grateful to Abu Dhabi Art for their support and consider it an honour that my artwork will serve as the advertising and artistic visual campaign for the upcoming fair.”
