INAUGURAL DUBAI DESIGN WEEK
The inaugural Design Week places Dubai on the map as a global capital for design. Mark your diaries: The inaugural Dubai Design Week takes place October 26-31, 2015.
The 6-day series of events will activate more than 60 activities and projects across the city. Highlights include the world’s first Global Grad Show, a showcase of the innovative design thinking of ten top-tier universities – from MIT in Boston to Keio University in Tokyo – as well as Abwab a series of design pavilions from six countries in the region that will explore this year’s theme of Games: The Element of Play in Culture.
Dubai Design Week has also partnered with six international design weeks including Mexico’s Abierto Mexicano De Diseño and Istanbul Design Week, providing a global meeting point for the cutting edge design thinking, branding and production of today.
Dubai Design Week is held in partnership with Dubai Design District (d3) and is supported by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority and Dubai Design & Fashion Council.
Art Dubai is pleased to welcome Pablo del Val, previously the artistic director of Mexico City’s ZONA MACO, as the new Director of Exhibitor Relations.
Pablo will be working with Art Dubai’s director Antonia Carver to grow the galleries and collector programmes at the fair.
Art Dubai will launch its 2016 visual identity on October 1, 2015.
Developed by Art Dubai's creative design partner Kemistry Design, this year's campaign takes inspiration from the global happenings of the festival's founding year – from the seemingly inconsequential to the highly significant.
Art Dubai's visual identity will be revealed piece by piece over the coming months, culminating at Art Dubai, March 16-19 2015.
In 2016, Art Dubai celebrates its 10th Anniversary.
