Event: Abu Dhabi Art Fair
Date: 2021
Venue: Manarat Al Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi

Taking place over four days Abu Dhabi Art is the region’s largest art fair, growing in size and international stature each year.

The fair, organised by DCT - Abu Dhabi, promotes cultural tourism and provides an important sales platform for participating galleries.

Abu Dhabi Art also offers these galleries an opportunity to showcase ambitious installations and site-specific works by their artists to a wide audience.

The event offers live performances, guest speakers, talks and panels as well as workshops that caters for all ages.

Alongside the galleries, Projex built and installed the winning student designed Pavilion in the garden area.

Projex was responsible, in partnership with DCT, for the delivery of the overall event.

This year Projex was also commissioned to design and build Abu Dhabi Art's Education Partner's Booth, Mouawad.

Mouawad’s booth welcomed visitors to an interactive display that took them on a journey through Mouawad heritage and its masterpieces. Among the pieces exhibited for Abu Dhabi Art were a unique diamond and emerald headpiece crafted by Mouawad in collaboration with Emirati fine jewellery designer, Salama Khalfan, in a design that pays tribute to the date palm tree for its special place at the heart of culture and life in the Gulf region.
