One of the pleasures of working in the field of contemporary Middle Eastern art is to follow its expansion and the increasing numbers of exhibitions and events which are appearing as time goes on. This means our newsletters are becoming longer each month as we feature more and more items. In order to accommodate this increase, we have introduced a new format which is categorised by region. As before, you can click on the titles or images for further details. We hope you like the new layout.

Our Art Matters and Inspiration sections remain the same and this month we look at crypto currencies and intriguing video on the work of Moroccoan artist Hicham Benohoud.

A leading event which encapsulates this growing interest in the region is of course Art Dubai from 21 to 24 March 2018 and we very much look forward to seeing you there.
