DIFC Hosts the Celebrated Art Nights @ Gate  Village on Wednesday 27th February

DIFC Art Nights returns once again with an eclectic collection  combining art, design, music and exquisite cuisine, guaranteed to thrill the UAE’s  art enthusiasts. The successful series, which takes place at the heart of  Dubai’s financial district, DIFC Gate Village, an urban area encompassing a collection  of galleries, boutiques, restaurants and high end cafes, will take place on  Wednesday 27th February, 2013.

Since its  inception in 2010, At Nights @ Gate Village has become an integral part of  DIFC’s ecosystem bringing the community together in one common interest: Art. The  latest installment includes several new exhibitions and viewings organised by select  galleries in the Gate Village. Visitors can choose to visit the Farjam  Collection to view their artistic collaboration with the United Nation’s World  Food Pragramme (WFP), or watch and participate in live art from artists Sassan  Saidi, Ubik, Noush Like Sploosh and Fathima Mohiuddin amongst other  things.  Art Night @ Gate Village offers  residents a unique experience in a vibrant setting and continues to attract  everyone from art collectors and bankers to young creativities and families.

Nabil Mohammed Ramadhan, Acting CEO, DIFC Properties,  said: “Art is fast becoming an essential component of the Dubai scene and we  recognize the significant role the DIFC plays in promoting UAE’s art culture  and in supporting local and regional talent. We also acknowledge the importance  art plays to the vibrancy of DIFC as an international financial hub along with  the many restaurants, retail outlets and cafes on offer.”  

The event features  exclusive music collaborations by DJ Lobito & the Deep Crates Cartel curating  the music and providing ambient tunes. The night will also mark the official  launch of Raqs Records, which have recently been receiving airplay and support  from Gilles Peterson's famous UK radio show.

Guests  who wish to continue on with the night are invited to a complimentary canapés  and drinks event hosted by The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC where they can enjoy the tuneful  sounds of the resident DJ, and sample the new cocktail and tapas menus,  now available on the terrace.
