The DIFC Art Nights will return to Dubai on 19 March 2018 at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). This edition of Art Nights will be held under the theme of 'Bridging the Gap’.
Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) — the Emirate’s dedicated entity for culture, arts and heritage — is acting as the ‘Cultural Partner’ for this season in line with its vision of positioning Dubai as a global, creative and sustainable city for culture, heritage, arts and literature. The first edition in 2017 welcomed around 4,000 visitors to DIFC’s Gate Village. The first Art Nights of the year showcased what DIFC’s newest outdoor urban space, framed by beautiful landscaping and greenery, will be offering for the community for years to come. Held Under the theme ‘Art Fresco’, the event also focused on how art can be seamlessly weaved into the fabric of the community, connecting people through creative outdoor living.
Featuring a unique fusion of art, culture and entertainment, DIFC Art Nights 2018 will transport you into a world of creativity and inspiration, presenting work by emerging and established artists from around the world, as well as offering visitors the chance to participate in creative activities. DIFC’s Gate Village art galleries will also open new art collections in line with the event. In line with the Year of Zayed, DIFC Art Nights will be hosting a special exhibition presented by ‘The Empty Quarter’ Gallery. This exhibition is a testimonial to Sheikh Zayed which will feature ancient photographs from Magnum photographer Bruno Barbey together with other collections to show how the UAE has transformed into a thriving and vibrant nation.
The event is free to attend and there will also be live music and food from an assortment of global cuisines, provided by the gourmet restaurants of DIFC.
