Abu Dhabi Art Fair

How do you put Middle Eastern talent on the global art map?

Projex were delighted to work with Abu Dhabi Art for the fourth year in a row in 2015.

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

Client: Department of Culture & Tourism – Abu Dhabi
Event: Abu Dhabi Art Fair
Date: 2015
Venue: Manarat Al Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi

It attracts over 25,000 international guests, with more than 40 exhibiting galleries.

We were delighted to be involved again.

This year’s show, with a new theme colour of yellow, was spread over a vast 4,000 square metres at Manarat Al Saadiyat.

Projex removed the wall between two galleries to create a single, spacious art fair, and built plinths for over 20 public art installations.

We also designed and built a new outside majlis with breath-taking views of the Saadiyat beach and the St Regis Hotel.

The result was a vibrant, dynamic, modern space that reflected the art fair’s vision.

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

  • Event design and management of the VIP reception
  • Fabrication and installation of each gallery including lighting and gallery walls
  • Production and implementation of all graphic signage
  • Traffic management and implementation
  • Stage management and fabrication of the auditorium
  • Design and fabrication of VIP majlis
  • Event lighting
  • Supply of event furniture.
