Off the Wall – Art Week

From 15th March to 25th March 2012

During artweek, The Majlis Gallery will be its usual hive of creativitiy.  Many of our favourite artists will be painting, drawing and sketching in the gallery  courtyard and out and about in Dubai.

Our Programme for Art Week is called Off The Wall and involves  international and national painters painting “en plein air” around Dubai and the UAE throughout the 10 days of Art Week with the work literally being stuck to the walls for perusal and sale as its finished.

Art Week, the umbrella initiative that includes Art Dubai, Design Days Dubai, Sikka, showcases the broad programme of cultural events taking place across the UAE and beyond from 15 to 25 March 2012. Art Week positions the Gulf – regionally and internationally – as a place of artistic production and home to numerous cultural centres. From expansive new museum projects in Doha to the thriving Dubai gallery scene, from one-off happenings, projects and installations to festivals and fairs, Art Week serves to demonstrate the dynamism and progressive spirit at large throughout the Gulf’s cultural scene.

Art Week actively encourages collaborations with art organisations, colleges, commercial galleries and non-commercial spaces, and helps to promote the UAE as the centre of the knowledge economy in the region, and as a home for the creative industries.

An Art Week guide will be published at the beginning of March, with detailed listings, previews and maps of key areas across the region.
