With our gallery at the City Walk, LUMAS now has two fantastic locations in Dubai.
Not far from the Persian Gulf, this relaxing and inviting outdoor mall draws both tourists and locals alike. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and step into the inspiring world of photo art!
One very encouraging aspect was the price point at Art Dubai.
Of course there were the heavy hitters with price tags to match, but there were affordable pieces for the fledgling collector too, not always from the most obvious quarters.
If censorship exists, which according to Floyd it does, then it is not too evident.
There was a nude, there was humour, and there were certainly politics represented throughout the entirely international slew of galleries.
Some of them are fabulous and some are okay, but they are all cheap.
The VIP program spanned the Gulf, from major international museum shows to exclusive preview and curator-led tours of collectors' homes, artists' studios and curator-led tours. Apart from the Global Art Forum, the non-profit program also includes The Abraaj Group Art Prize, the only prize in the MENASA region awarding artists on the basis of submitted proposals to a guest curated exhibition. The main reason, however, for the influx of attendees to Art Week prevalent throughout the region, was the belly of the fair itself, adroitly developed over the years by Fair Director Antonia Carver and housed at Madinat Jumeirah (there were four thousand revellers on the rather heady opening night, according to ex-pat Brit Ben Floyd, CEO and founder of Art Dubai - but we could still see the art).In fact, my birthday spa treatment included a massage and floral bath in Ubud, in an open air room with a view of the jungle, with both of us in the same room.But, in a more strict Muslim country, the ladies’ spa and the gents’ spa were on completely different floors.Established as the leading art fair in the MENASA region - Middle East, North Africa, South Asia - Art Dubai pulled out all the stops in its ninth year and the numbers spoke volumes.
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, Art Dubai secured 92 galleries across 40 countries, becoming a veritable smorgasbord for art lovers and buyers alike.This worked out perfectly as I had passed on the treatment while in Istanbul. It was quiet in the Palace Downtown Dubai spa on that week day evening. I have gotten used to being pretty well exposed in my spa treatments in Bali. I stood in nothing buy my spa panties while she poured buckets of warm water on me, scrubbed me, and rinsed me.
