Background:

During past years, the vibrant art scene of the United Arab Emirates and Qatar has attracted many visitor groups from the British museum, Tate Modern London or MoMa New York. Since 2008, tremendous landscapes of art museums and initiatives have been established in the United Arab Emirates under the patronage of the royal families of the region such as Emir Hamad bin Chalifa Al Thani in Qatar and the Sultanate of Al-Qasimi in Sharjah. Since 2006, Art Dubai has established a platform for art, being the most important art fair in the Middle East. “Saadiyat Island” will soon open up an additional art centre in Abu Dhabi. It is a must for art lovers to discover this region.
