view web site ›'s insider take:

Some of the city's most prominent curators have taken over a repurposed luxury shopping mall at the foot of the Dubai International Financial Center. Have lunch at one of the center's restaurants, such as Zuma, and you'll find yourself surrounded by collectors and bankers (often one and the same). Run by American Mona Hauser, XVA nurtures young Emirati talent, while Cuadro Fine Art features regional artists who have hit the auction house big-time. The Farjam Collection is a revolving exhibition space for extensive classical and contemporary Islamic works belonging to one of the region's biggest art patrons. Ayyam specializes in solo shows of Levantine work, and ArtSpace shows revolutionary Egyptian artists. The Empty Quarter, founded by a Saudi fine arts photographer and royal princess, showcases both contemporary and historic photographic images.—Susan Hack
