I feel so inspired and refreshed to be back at an in-person art fair, to feel the vibe and the buzz that comes along with these kind of international events!

“È stato davvero ispirante e rigenerante tornare ad assistere a una fiera d’arte di persona, sentire quelle vibrazioni che trovi in questo genere di eventi”, commenta Nel-Olivia Waga.

Simple Talk 2017 by Pablo Reinoso is a perfect sculpture in midst of the Dubai Financial District, where the art fair has set up a sculpture park – I feel like it shows the world, that Dubai is back to life – after the pandemic. It’s inviting to enjoy life again and engage in art, talks and the city.

Simple Talk 2017 di Pablo Reinoso si trova nel mezzo del parco delle sculture allestito per la fiera al Dubai Financial District: “Credo che mostri al mondo che Dubai è tornata alla vita, dopo la pandemia. È un invito a godere di nuovo della vita e dell’arte”, dice Waga.

Art Dubai 2021 is different than in the past years. It’s smaller, yet very pleasant and enjoyable. You really have time to engage in the art works, it’s very relaxed yet vibrant and sets the tone for a new dynamic of exhibiting art. Setting it up in midst the Dubai Financial District gives it an extra special energy.

“La fiera è diversa dal passato. È più piccola, ma comunque gradevole. Hai il tempo per comprendere meglio le opere, è una situazione rilassante ma vitale e mostra un nuovo modo di concepire le fiere d’arte. La location nel centro finanziario è una chicca”, commenta Waga.

The fair is very organized in terms of ticketing and time slots and the number of persons being allowed inside the tent. Everything is booked via the app and released in QR codes. Masks are mandatory. It feels very relaxed and there was no stress. You could really see the smiles in peoples eyes, which was a nice experience. Also the focus is more on the art – because you barely recognize the people, so you really just watch the art and you can enjoy it more.

La fiera è ben organizzata a livello di biglietteria e ingressi: tutto si prenota via app e si fruisce delle informazioni attraverso il codice QR. Si entra solo con la mascherina.

JR’s stunning projects of the artistic transformation of the Louvre in Paris shown at Galerie Perrotin. It’s definitely been my favorite.

“I progetti di Jr per il Louvre di Parigi, in mostra nello stand delle Galerie Perrotin: la mia opera preferita”, spiega Waga.

JR’s works are so impressive and innovative.

“I lavori di JR hanno un impatto notevole e ben rappresentano lo spirito di questo nostro tempo e del futuro”, dice Nel-Olivia Waga

Ruinart x David Shrigley Unconventional Bubbles.  Little did we know… His works for Ruinart’s Art Commission 2020 related to sustainability and the health of our planet are very on point and coincidentally perfectly representing the current situation in the world. Perfect placement and statement at Art Dubai!

‘Unconventional Bubbles’, il lavoro di David Shrigley per Ruinart collegato alla sostenibilità del nostro Pianera, è perfetto per commentare la pandemia. Ideale averlo esposto ad Art Dubai”, dice Waga.

These Reflections, the night-light, palm trees and the financial district (DIFC) – it is just a way of showing that all this can perfectly exist next to each other. That the world is not black OR white – it’s art, it’s colors, it’s black and white being side by side – together. You can unite it all!

“Questi riflessi, con le luci della notte, le palme e il distretto finanziario sono un modo per dirci che tutto questo può coesistere. E che il mondo non è in bianco e nero: è arte, colore, con i  banchi e neri che giocano insieme e si possono unire”, conclude Nel-Olivia Waga.
