Don’t miss Alserkal Avenue this week

Art Week is upon us. With all the galleries in Dubai showing their top shows of the year and the art fair on this week, there really is art everywhere you turn at the moment. If you feel a bit overwhelmed and don’t know where to start or which art to see first, why not check out some of the many artist talks? They are perfect ways to learn about artists and to find ways to understand their work and if you go to catch a talk, then you might even have the chance to talk to the artist about their works yourself - surely not a chance to pass up.
