Date: 7 – 11 March 2018
Venue: Warehouse421, Mina Zayed, Abu Dhabi

Galleries Week first launched in 2017 as a collaboration between Warehouse421 and Abu Dhabi Art. In 2018 it returned in expanded form through a new partnership with Festember.
Six galleries came together in the industrial neighbourhood of Mina Zayed from 7-11 March 2018, showcasing artworks by emerging and established artists. The participating galleries for 2018 were: Athr, Cuadro Fine Art Gallery, Etihad Modern Art Gallery, Hafez Gallery, Meem Gallery and Salwa Zeidan Gallery. With prices for artworks starting at 650 AED, both first-time art collectors and more established ones found exciting new art at affordable prices.
Galleries Week also provided an opportunity for the community to enjoy contemporary design and music performances, in an extended cultural programme organised by Festember.
2018 Galleries Week was followed by an extended exhibition programme, initiated by Abu Dhabi Art, during which galleries showcase artworks for sale in an exhibition format for one month each.
