Noticeably absent are those blue-chip brands: the Gagosians, White Cubes, Zwirners, et al. These days, that cohort tends to gravitate towards November’s Abu Dhabi Art, where six-figure sales are more prevalent. Instead, Art Dubai’s selection committee takes in a globalized selection of mid-range and young galleries. Conceptual work abounds and booths offer up a dynamic swath of contrasts and styles. It’s work that tends to sell less impressively than painting at sub-$75,000 price points, which has consistently done well here this year—as especially evidenced by AB Gallery and Hildebrand. But, with near-simultaneous 2016 editions of Art Basel in Hong Kong and New York’s Armory once again, Art Dubai will have to double down on its efforts to continue to tempt collectors.
