In a bid to banish “elitism in art”, the third season of World Art Dubai promises buyers wallet-friendly prices starting at $100.

The fair taking place tomorrow until April 15 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) is a curated platform dedicated to the UAE’s art collectors and first-time buyers. It is set to collect over 150 local, regional and global artists and galleries and showcase over 3,000 one-of-a-kind artworks.

“The primary objective of World Art Dubai is to open up the world of art to everyone - we want to educate people from all walks of life on the best practices for starting their own art collections and investing in art,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Exhibitions & Events Management, DWTC.

However, the fair is also scheduled to feature artwork priced at up to $20,000, including paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs and more.

Furthermore, visitors can enjoy interactive programs such as the Create a Masterpiece and The Art Of workshops, exclusive talks in The Blah Blah Lounge and numerous outdoor activations.
