ABU DHABI ART FAIR AT MANARAT AL SAADIYAT
In November 2015, Alif Art Gallery took part in seventh edition of The Abu Dhabi Art fair at Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat cultural district. The fair plays a key role in bringing the international art scene to the city of Abu Dhabi. For Alif Art Gallery, the event offers a good opportunity to be part of the Middle Eastern art market and to introduce artists from Uzbekistan to the Middle East and to a wider audience. Central Asia residency, a joint project with Abu Dhabi Art Hub, has given the opportunity for artists represented by Alif to show case their work at Abu Dhabi Art fair. Art works by Murad Karabaev, Timur Ernst Akhmedov, Dilyara Kaipova created during one month residency at Art Hub, became the centre pieces in the gallery booth and attracted lots of interest from visitors, collectors and specialists.
