Sotheby’s Dubai will host its first ever auction in November this year. 

The famous London-based auction house will stage the auction, entitled Boundless: Dubai, at its DIFC office on November 13. 

 

Sotheby's Dubai said the auction will present new perspectives on art from and inspired by the Middle East, and explore the influence of the region - its beauty, complexity and artistic heritage - on artistic innovation around the globe.

The auction’s offering spans the collecting categories of 20th Century and Contemporary Middle Eastern Art, Design, Photography, Prints, Books & Manuscripts, Arts of the Islamic World, Orientalist Art and Jewellery.

The works for sale will be exhibited at Sotheby’s Dubai in the DIFC from November 6-12. 

Sotheby’s Dubai will also, at the time of the exhibition for the auction, host public tours of the works presented for sale and talks on the art and general market.  

Free valuations of jewels and valuables

Following the inauguration of its new office and gallery space in March this year, Sotheby’s Dubai continues to evolve and expand its offerings in the city. 

Sotheby's said that a team of its experts will offer residents in the UAE complimentary valuations of their gems and jewels on a weekly basis.

The valuations will take place in Sotheby’s Dubai office space at Level 1, Gate Village Building 3, DIFC every Tuesday from 1-5pm, starting October 24.
