Four days to visit some of the most influential galleries on the international art market but also discover the Middle East's contemporary art scene, and refresh our view of this region, where East and West meet, on the crossroads of the legendary Silk Road.

"Abu Dhabi Art is part of a larger programme designed to continue Abu Dhabi's efforts in enriching cultural life for Emiratis, UAE residents and for our millions of visitors, who are coming to expect something distinctive and compelling in Abu Dhabi," statedA Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of TDIC and ADACH. "As Abu Dhabi Art continues to grow in its second year, as the museums on Saadiyat Island begin to take shape, and as the cultural life in the Emirate blooms, we are fulfilling our vision for transforming Abu Dhabi into a global crossroads for arts and culture."
