Dubai Canvas is a unique public art festival organised by Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO). The annual event, launched in 2015, provides a platform for renowned artists from around the world to exhibit their creations in a public space.
The Festival is aligned with the directives of Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to convert Dubai into an open-air museum that inspires creativity and innovation. The Festival is also part of Brand Dubai’s objective of organising cultural events that contribute to enhancing the artistic and cultural ambience of Dubai and support its development into a global cultural hub.
The fourth edition of Dubai Canvas will be held in partnership with Meraas, one of Dubai’s leading holding companies, from 1 to 7 March 2018. The Festival features the works of over 30 international artists. Apart from bringing together unique works from the world’s leading 3D artists, Dubai Canvas 2018 also provides a platform for other innovative art forms.
Public spaces in La Mer, Meraas’ world-class beachfront destination, will be converted into open-air ‘canvases’ for the artists to display their work. In addition to the global artists, talented Emirati artists will also display their creations at the Festival.
