Middle East art market strengthening further
A recent survey of exhibitors at Art Dubai 2009 has shown that galleries are increasingly aware of the strength of interest in contemporary art among Middle Eastern investors.

More than two-thirds believed that the Gulf market was a key region for the art world, while 88 per cent felt that a presence at the Art Dubai fair would help them to expand business opportunities in the area.

"A year of research into art fairs in the region led us to conclude that, of all of them, Art Dubai had most potential for us ... to promote our artists in the Middle East," said Emeliyan Zakharov, of Triumph Gallery, Russia.

Those considering property investment in Dubai may be interested in attending the event to add value to their home with the latest in contemporary art work.

Art Dubai will take place between from March 18th to 21st and will be held at Madinat Jumeirah.ADNFCR-2019-ID-18963757-ADNFCR
