Art in Dubai: The TGC Edit
Here at The Goodness Company, we’re certified art aficionados (we also believe everyone secretly is) and as such the upcoming edition of Art Dubai was on our to-do list for months. However, with the current pandemic of COVID-19, we’re looking at alternative ways to enjoy the creative offerings of regional and international artists from the comfort of our own homes. Here are our top three picks.

While the official Art Dubai fair has been postponed the juggernaut of creative vision that has become a go-to for art connoisseurs is pummeling forward with a programme specifically tailored to the local cultural community including existing fair programme contributors and thought-leaders. These will include local and regional gallery presentations, Global Art Forum, Residents and Campus Art Dubai. While these are the physical activations in place, the Art Dubai Website is a haven of content where one can browse more than 500 artworks by the represented artists from Art Dubai, filter selections according to your specified criteria and place purchase inquiries directly with the galleries. Visit Art Dubai’s Portraits page for some exceptional content.
