Khak took artworks by Nargess Hashemi, Mandana Moqaddam, Golnaz Fathi, Kurosh Shishegaran, Mojtaba Ramzi and Masud AkhavanJam, and the Saradipour Art International put on view 40 paintings by Moslem Khezri.

The 14th edition of the fair, recognized as West Asia’s leading art fair for showcasing local, regional and international artists, took place in an adapted format at Dubai International Financial Centre from March 29 to April 3 with 50 galleries from 31 countries showcasing a diverse selection of artworks, artists and practices that reflects the multicultural identity of the city.

Due to the pandemic, the fair opened with the first three days restricted to VIPs and invitation-only guests. The fair’s artistic director, Pablo del Val, said that he is pleased with the performance of the 2021 edition.

“Doing a very straightforward fair, where the relationship between the visitor and the work of art is raw, is amazing… It’s been a different exercise for collectors. There are fewer distractions around,” he added.
