Sectors

Participating exhibitors for this year’s edition are either invited by curators or previous Abu Dhabi Art Fair exhibitors.

Modern & Contemporary
Modern and Contemporary galleries presenting a wide range of different medium artworks by different artists. 

The Day After
Curated by Simon Nijami 
A new curated gallery sector that highlights artists from across the African continent in an exhibition format.  Which tackles the idea of the day after which can only occur if it is related to subjectivity and my conviction is that artists are the sole bearers of an unstained subjectivity.
 
Material-Real 
Curated by Sung woo Kim
A new curated gallery sector that highlights emerging and established Korean artists chosen. 
 
India Today
Curated by Ashwin Thadani
A curated sector that brings together artists and galleries from India for the second year in a row. 
 
A Picture Held Us Captive
Curated by Nada Raza
A new curated sector that brings together artists and galleries from the UAE in an exhibition format. The selection of works will bring into question the primacy of the visual in our shift to consuming art online.

Community Partners
Local organisations known for their contributions and efforts in supporting the cultural community through a variety of activities are invited to highlight their latest non-profit initiatives.
