Founded in 2010, the Sikka Art Fair is the flagship event of the Dubai government’s Culture & Art’s Authority. The annual Middle East’s first entirely commissioned visual and performing art programme is spread over 11 days and coincides with the prestigious Art Dubai and Art Week.
During the Sikka Art Fair, Dubai comes to life with various artistic installations, pop-ups, workshops, talks and events.
In 2016, the sixth edition of the Sikka Art Fair (pictured here) was curated by the well-known UAE painter, sculptor and photographer – Mattar bin Lahej. The focus of the 2016 Sikka festival was centered around identifying the UAE and the wider GCC region’s aspiring and emerging local talent.
The Sikka Art Fair is a must-visit and offers up an incredibly inspiring cultural schedule every March in Dubai. Visit the official website here to learn more and stay up to date with the future events Dubai Culture has planned.
