Dubai’s fantastic location between east and west brings many multinational artists together this year at the Art Dubai Fair. For its 12th edition, Art Dubai will present a very unique line-up of 105 galleries from 48 countries shining some much needed light on art from the world’s emerging markets alongside leading galleries. To celebrate this occasion, we’re going to wander together on Friday March 23 in Madinat Jumeirah exploring the creative culture and art scene with none other than art expert, Salma. Both art lovers and even amateur eyes will get a better appreciation and critical eye for what is an ever changing form of expression. Once we've all mastered the art of art speak, guests will have the opportunity to wander for an hour at their own leisure exploring the Souk Madinat Jumeirah, a recreation of an ancient Arabian marketplace that fuses echoes of Dubai's merchant past with its ambitious present. 

This tour will be co-led by Salma, a wonderful art connoisseur who works closely with collectors, both seasoned and novice, introducing them to the magical world of art. Viewing the fair through Salma’s eyes is a unique opportunity to learn about the global art market and enjoy one of Dubai’s most important cultural events.
