MinD - Made in Dubai Art Festival

MinD (Made in Dubai) is an art festival organised by DUCTAC that will focus on the emerging talent that live, work and produce art in Dubai. To those that say there is no developing art scene in Dubai, hope this exhibition will change your mind.

The festival will showcase experimental, site-specific works with an urban theme in a range of media from video installation to graphic art by talented artists working to create a creative community in Dubai.
