What’s Showing at Dubai Art Week, March–April 2021

Dubai’s art scene is bouncing back in early 2021. The long-running commercial anchor of its annual March art season, Art Dubai, was delayed a couple of weeks and relocated to temporary structures in the Dubai International Financial Centre with fewer galleries, but nonetheless kicked off its 14th edition on March 29 with timed-ticketing and pandemic guidelines in place. As part of Dubai Art Week, many of the galleries in Alserkal Avenue and the Al Quoz district have also organized IRL solo and group exhibitions, a selection of which are highlighted here.
