Art Dubai 2024: Platforming the Global South from the Arabian Gulf

Held from February 28-March 3, 2024, Art Dubai’s 17th edition showcased more than 100 galleries, with over two-thirds representing the Global South. Despite a challenging geopolitical landscape, the fair enhanced its regional presence in West Asia and broadened its influence across continents, extending from East Asia through Africa to Latin America.

The Global South and the Art Market

The concept of the ‘Global South’ has gained prominence in the curatorial approach of major biennials and triennials in non-Western countries, especially in Asia from Sharjah to Jogja Biennale in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, through Kochi and Kathmandu, contributing scholarly insights in art and socio-cultural history to the politico-economic origins of the term. Museum and gallery exhibitions have followed suit and now the semantic extension of the Global South to art aligns with Art Dubai’s aim to platform non-Western art within decolonial narratives and challenge the Western-centric paradigm in the art world. Leveraging its strategic geographic location as at the nexus of five continents and its highly cosmopolitan society, with up to 88.5 per cent of its population being non-Emirati,Art Dubai has positioned itself as the centre of gravity in the Global South’s art market. The fair distinguishes itself from competitors such as Art Basel and Frieze, by emphasising truly global exchanges and decentralisation from major art trade hubs like New York, London and Paris.
