Amongst the participants are artists such as Rashid Rana, Naiza Khan, Farida Batool, Imran Qureshi and Mohammad Ali Talpur.

John Martin, Fair Director comments:
"We are pleased that amongst this year's highlights is a curated show of Pakistani
contemporary art. Sixty years of turbulent history have only served to challenge the creative energies of artists who are now emerging on the international art scene as an innovative and creative group. This exhibition is the first in a series of annual projects that will focus on artists from across the region."

Art Dubai is also pleased to announce a new project space for the Middle East's first
Contemporary art fair. Art Park, situated in the underground car park at the Madinat Arena is a space devoted to experimental and site-specific works with a particular emphasis on video. Art Park includes projects by Idris Khan (Yvon Lambert, Paris/New York), Jittish Kallat (Albion Gallery, London) and Mohammed Zeeshan and Khalil Chishtee (Green Cardamom, London) will be on display.

"Art Projects are an integral part of the development of Art Dubai and offer visitors the chance to experience major works by international artists.
