On December 16, the United Arab Emirates' longest-running art fair, Art Dubai, confirmed that it will proceed with a live, in-person event in 2021 with 85 galleries from 36 countries, scheduled for March 17–21. The 14th edition coincides with the UAE’s 50th anniversary, and will return to the Madinat Jumeirah resort with health-related measures in place. A new artist-led program will feature performances and artist-directed site-specific experiences around the city by Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Kristoffer Ardeña, and James Clar, among others. The 2020 fair was canceled in March just two weeks before its opening date due to the spread of Covid-19. The 2021 event, touted as the “first major international art fair taking place in Spring 2021,” is an aspiring hope for the new year.
