Abu Dhabi reveals plans for inaugural edition of Abu Dhabi art.

ABU DHABI, Sept 7 (KUNA) -- Tourism Development Investment Company (TDIC) and Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture Heritage (ADACH), on MOnday revealed details of Abu Dhabi Art, an innovative new platform for modern and contemporary art. Bringing together an exclusive selection of high-level art galleries from the four corners of the world within an ancient and modern crossroads of culture and trade, Abu Dhabi Art will be a new-model curated art fair, which will reflect the dramatically changing geography of today's art world. Organised exclusively by TDIC and ADACH, Abu Dhabi Art will be presented under the patronage of General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. Featuring an extraordinarily rich roster of special exhibitions, public programmes and cultural events to complement a boutique-style art fair with leading galleries from America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Abu Dhabi Art will take place in the capital of the UAE where the already renowned Saadiyat Island Cultural District is taking shape. Abu Dhabi Art will be the must-see event for collectors, artists, designers, art dealers, curators, critics and art lovers from around the world and an integral part of Abu Dhabis long-term cultural vision as the Zayed National Museum, the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Museum and the Louvre Abu Dhabi rise on the shores of the Arabian Gulf and build their world-class collections. "Abu Dhabi Art will be a compelling new cultural offering, providing Emiratis and visitors with an entirely new experience of modern and contemporary art," stated Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of TDIC and ADACH. "Abu Dhabi Art, paired with the unparalleled experience of the Saadiyat Island Cultural District museums will secure Abu Dhabis position as a vibrant cultural hub regionally and internationally", he added.
