Art Dubai begins
The second year of Dubai's contemporary art fair begins. Held again at the Madinat Jumeirah, with a new name and about twice the size its 2007 show, gallerists and art enthusiasts were excited at what this year would bring. In comparison, there was an increase of figurative work and a selection for all. Some galleries were doing great in terms of sales while others were disappointed, although enjoyed the experience of seeing Dubai. This year Art Dubai expanded with a section called the "Pakistani Pavillion" and had the Biduon video lounge and some other installations taking up space in by the car park.
