UAE Pavilion, a structure that was originally created for the World Expo 2010 Shanghai, will host the UAE capital’s acclaimed art event, Abu Dhabi Art, in Saadiyat.
Abu Dhabi Art is an international platform for modern and contemporary art. In addition to world-class art, visitors to the fair can also enjoy an exciting series of exhibitions, talks, performances, workshops and VIP networking events.
In 2010, Abu Dhabi Art attracted more than 17,000 visitors and we are optimistic that this year’s event will be just as popular. Furthermore, this year’s exhibition will showcase around 50 international galleries, operating as a boutique-style fair.
The UAE Pavilion, inspired by the desert dunes of the Emirates, showcased exhibitions about the history of the UAE in Shanghai and attracted almost two million visitors. It was designed by Foster + Partners, one of the world’s top architectural firms, and has been relocated from its original site in Shanghai to be reconstructed on Saadiyat.
