Art Dubai 2021 extended, dates moved, venue changed due to COVID-related restrictions


14th Art Dubai announced three major modifications to be applied to its 14th edition: delaying the event, extending it by two days and change of the venue. The changes take into account health and safety protocols, travel and other COVID-related restrictions.
