Art Nights returns after a successful series of vibrant cultural evenings that take place at the heart of Dubai’s financial district – DIFC Gate Village; a contemporary urban area that’s home to a collection of galleries, boutiques, restaurants and high-end cafes.
The ongoing series of Art Nights @ Gate Village has become an essential part of Dubai’s calendar highlighting the important role that DIFC Gate Village plays in bringing art enthusiasts together. The event has grown in popularity and esteem through the last two years attracting everyone from art collectors and bankers to young creatives and families. The unique location and lineup of exhibition openings as well as live acts creates an attractive ambience and experience for visitors and has come to play an integral role in promoting and supporting the arts and culture in Dubai.
Nabil Mohammed Ramadhan, Acting CEO, DIFC Properties, said: “These days art represents a new alternative asset class, and the DIFC recognises not only the aesthetic benefits that art provides, but the interconnectedness it shares with the financial world. Art Night @ Gate Village offers residents a unique experience in a vibrant setting, showcasing the exceptional works curated by DIFC’s many galleries.”
Art Nights will present several new exhibitions, viewings organized by the number of art galleries in the Gate Village. There will also be an exclusive roundtable with Artist Fahd Burki presented by Shelter Dubai and Urban Series film screening by Brownbook.
In support of regional talent, Art Nights has asked Fathima Mohiuddin, the founder of UAE based artist talent management company, The Domino to curate two live art showcases by artists Liz Ramos, German Fernandez and Darwin Guevara.
In partnership with Perrier, the evening will be complimented with music from a unique collaboration by Break DJ Lobito & the Deep Crates Cartel.
Guests are invited to complimentary canapés and drinks provided by The Ritz-
Carlton, DIFC and experience the exclusive design furniture provided by Catertainment.
Once Art Nights draws to a close, continue the evening at the official after-party, at Art After Dark @ No.5 Bar & Terrace. Enjoy the tuneful sounds of the DJ, and sample the new cocktail and tapas menus, now available on the terrace.
Art Nights @ Gate Village is free and open to the public.
