Art Dubai, part 1

I've been in Dubai this week on a press junket for the yearly international art fair Art Dubai. I'm going to share some pictures with very brief comments.

The picture (and partial self-portrait) below was taken at one of the many gallery openings that accompany the fair. The mirrored work of Iranian artist Monir Farmanfarmaian is very popular and a fitting representative of the glam and commercial Dubai art scene.
