DUABI: World Art Dubai (WAD), the region’s largest contemporary art fair, is set to mark its 10th edition by featuring over 4,000 artworks from over 65 countries, including Japan, presenting a dynamic snapshot of Dubai’s unique blend of local and international influences and reinforcing the city’s position as an arts powerhouse for the Global South, elevating the global positioning of WAD.

The international pavilions stand as cultural gateways, each offering a unique window into the country’s or region’s artistic heritage and contemporary creativity.

From the traditional to the avant-garde, these pavilions curate a rich tapestry of artistic expressions, underscoring the universal language of art that unites us all. Each pavilion is a testament to the global nature of WAD and its commitment to fostering cultural exchange and appreciation.

The Japanese pavilion presents a curated blend of traditional and contemporary Japanese arts. Additionally, the art fair will include performances from Japanese artists who will showcase Japanese culture to a wide audience. Performances will include, but are not limited to, calligraphy, mythology dance, and a cherry blossom live painting. 

The UAE and GCC Pavilions will spotlight both the talent of residents who call Dubai home and talented citizens, demonstrating how the two populations exist and interact through their creative drives. These artists include Daria Avdeeva, Javeria Khan, and Francine Kaspar, presenting their vibrant artworks that harmoniously blend classical techniques with contemporary interpretations, reflecting the UAE’s multicultural identity.

Additionally, Hend Rashed, a Dubai-based abstract artist, will present her dynamic creations. With a repertoire spanning seven years at prestigious exhibitions worldwide, including in Singapore, Oman, and Italy, Rashed’s artistry has earned her nominations for the UAE Residence Artist Award by World Art Dubai for three consecutive years.

The four-day event will take place at Dubai’s World Trade Center from May 2 to May 5. Tickets start at ¥634.
