Abu Dhabi Art will be presenting Beyond: Emerging Artists 2020 at Cromwell Place in London from 4 - 13 June 2021, in its first ever exhibition abroad. It will be joined by four UAE galleries invited by the fair to showcase artists from the region in a collaborative event.

Abu Dhabi Art Beyond: Emerging Artists was curated by Maya El-Khalil in 2020 and first shown at Manarat Al Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi in November 2020. The commissions explore in diverse ways, the theme of memory, with works by Hind Mezaina, Afra Al Dhaheri and Afra Al Suwaidi.

Alongside these new commissions and by invitation from Abu Dhabi Art, Tabari Artspace will show recent works by emerging performance artist Maitha Abdalla, whose work crosses mediums to explore adolescence and transitional moments. Lawrie Shabibi will show works by the UAE’s most established contemporary artist, Mohammed Ahmed Ibrahim who will represent the UAE at the Venice Biennale in 2022. Dubai-based galleries The Third Line and Isabelle Van Den Eynde will present a selection of MENA-based artists including Anuar Khalifi, Sara Naim, Sophia Al Maria and Manal AlDowayan.
