The final year Manipal university media students, specializing in Visual Communication, visited Art Dubai, a premier art exhibition in the UAE on Thursday, 22nd March. Art Dubai, in its sixth edition, is an art fair that takes place across a number of galleries in the UAE between March 15th and March 25th.

The Visual Communication students visited two interesting art exhibitions at Sikka Art Fair in Bastakiyah and the Abraaj Competition entries displayed at Art Dubai.

“We were able to see many interesting art pieces and paintings. One creation that used mirrors to show different faces of one person was remarkable,” said Khadija Shabbir, a final year visual communication student who visited the fair.

Art Dubai is one of the largest events of its kind and gives artists a chance to display an array of artwork across the participating galleries in the region. The visit allowed students to gain inspiration from the myriad artists and their work, and was an enriching experience for all.
