 In the first exhibition of 2020, Sotheby’s Dubai galleries bring together twenty-one modern and contemporary artworks spanning genres and continents. From Pop Artist Robert Indiana’s instantly recognisable ‘Love’ sculpture and whimsical works on paper by Andy Warhol, to Ayman Baalbaki’s signature expressionist freedom fighter and street artist Banksy’s take on military helicopters – the exhibition creates dialogues between artists from across the world.

The view is taking place at Level 1, Gate Village Building 3, Dubai International Financial Centre, UAE from 9 – 13 February, open to the public from 10am – 7pm daily. The works will then travel to London to be auctioned as part of our 20th Century Art / Middle East and Contemporary Curated sales.

Located in the heart of the DIFC, Sotheby’s Dubai presents a vibrant, ever-evolving programme of year-round events, including selling and non-selling exhibitions, events and talks, watches and jewellery valuations – reflecting the spectrum of Sotheby’s international sales and extensive client services.

“We are starting the new year as we mean to go on, with a curated exhibition that brings something different from our international sales directly to the doorsteps of collectors in Dubai. The view will allow visitors to explore the synergies between these artists, who were working at the same time but in different corners of the globe – in America, France, Lebanon, Iran, Japan, Syria, the United Kingdom and beyond.” Katia Nounou Boueiz, Head of Sotheby’s Dubai.
