design Days Dubai


About us

Design Days Dubai is the leading fair in the Middle East and South Asia dedicated to collectible and limited edition furniture and design objects. The fair presents design from leading international designers and galleries alongside up and coming design from across the world. The fair also presents a strong non-commercial programme consisting of education, workshops, installations and live performances.

Upcycling To Attain Perfection

The promising young Jordanian architects behind Aperçu Designs explain how they transform unwanted wood with colored resin to produce elegant, bespoke furniture and ethereal lights that elevate the imperfect into beautiful collectible pieces.

Albara Simaldahar of Jeddah-based design studio Dahr, discusses how his fascination with optical illusions and Islamic architecture inspired Qaws, a multifunctional piece that works as a stool, a high table and a coffee table depending on how it’s positioned.

Between the apex of Abstract Expressionism and the rise of Pop Art and Minimalism, the New York art scene was transformed by artist-run galleries. Inventing Downtown presents works from fourteen of these crucibles of experimentation, highlighting artists’ efforts to create new exhibition venues for innovative works of art—ranging from abstract and figurative painting, assemblage, sculpture, and works on paper to groundbreaking installations and performances.
Inventing Downtown proposes viewing these fourteen galleries via five thematic groupings.Leaving Midtown focuses on three Tenth Street galleries which adopted a cooperative business structure where expenses were shared among elected members: Tanager GalleryHansa Gallery, and Brata GalleryCity as Muse features four ventures that did not adopt the co-op model: City GalleryReuben Gallery,  Delancey Street Museum, and Judson Gallery. They are best known for creating dynamic installations and pioneering performances. Space and Time investigates two significant artist-run projects, 112 Chambers Street and 79 Park Place, which occupied different conceptual terrains, embraced a wide range of media, and shared an interest in exploring temporality and geo-spatial dimensions. Politics as Practice includes four groups: March Group, Judson Church’s Hall of IssuesThe Center, and Spiral Group, which examined the viability of politics as a subject for art and channeled a new sense of social urgency in addressing Cold War politics, the civil rights movement, and the legacy of World War II, among other concerns. Finally, Defining Downtown looks at the Green Gallery, which played a decisive role in bringing downtown uptown and fostering the rise of Pop and Minimalism.  Its program, however, resulted in the narrowing of aesthetic possibilities and the marginalization of many artists.
Artist-run galleries shaped American art irreversibly. After 1965, New York’s uptown and downtown art scenes increasingly diverged, which led to the flowering of nonprofit downtown alternative spaces. Although more than half a century has passed since the era ofInventing Downtown, many of the issues mined in the exhibition still resonate in today’s art world—split as it is between the booming commercial market for contemporary art and ever more pluralistic models of artistic production, promotion, and display.
Inventing Downtown is curated by Melissa Rachleff, clinical associate professor in NYU’s Steinhardt Schoo

About michael Xufu Huang

First, the facts: Michael Xufu Huang of Beijing is a 22-year-old student at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is pursuing degrees in art history and marketing and is an active brother in the Zeta Psi fraternity. He’s also a co-founder of the nonprofit private art museum M WOODS, located in Beijing’s flowering (and rapidly gentrifying) factory complex-cum-creative center 798 Art District. Since its inception in 2014, M Woods has hosted exhibitions featuring a mix of Chinese and international artists, from giants like Ai Weiwei and Tracey Emin to up-and-comers like Petra Cortright and Yu Hongli. It’s a self-consciously hip and dynamic museum that reflects the continually evolving Chinese art market, which Huang himself may exemplify. He's young, hungry, luxury-obsessed, and unstoppable. 
A collector from age 16, Huang is in good company with the other founders of M Woods, Wanwan Leiand her husband Lin Han. Before the museum, Lei modeled for the Chinese painter Liu Ye and ran her own roving exhibition platform in addition to being an active collector and fashion icon. Han made waves in 2013 when, at the ripe old age of 26, he made his first-ever art purchase: a million-dollar Zeng Fanzhi mask painting, selected right off the cover of Sotheby’s40th anniversary day-sale catalogue. The three have been on a collecting frenzy ever since, and M WOODS (financed by Han with the help of his investor parents) is the early result of their thirst for art and knack for both acquisition and presentation.
In person, Huang is soft-spoken, amiable, and impeccably clothed. A fashion trendsetter like Lei, he has worked as a stylist and regularly turns heads with his distinctive, edgy ensembles that he broadcasts through his popular Instagram feed (where he's invariably seen posing with Hans Ulrich ObristGucci savior Alessandro Michele, or other cultural luminaries). He's also disarmingly earnest, still very much the ambitious college junior—albeit one who is on the New Museum’s International Leadership Council, hobnobs with other precocious collectors like Tiffany Zabludowicz at exclusive art events around the world, and regularly flies off to Beijing or London to close deals and hunt for new talent.
In this interview with Dylan Kerr, conducted in Artspace’s New York office during one of Huang’s weekly trip to the city, the collector opens up about the pros and cons of his young age, his confidence in the lasting impact of Post-Internetart, and his plans to make M WOODS “the MoMA of China.”
Let’s start with the story of M WOODS. How does a 22-year-old find himself co-founding a contemporary art institution?

about Pulse..IN MIAMI ..decembre 2017...

guide-to-armory-week-2017...by HYPERALLERGIC


Some highlights

ADAA Art Show

When: March 1–5 / Wednesday–Friday: noon–8pm; Saturday: noon–7pm; Sunday: noon–5pm ($25)
Where: Park Avenue Armory (643 Park Avenue, Upper East Side, Manhattan)
The Art Show isn’t the place to go to see risky, sink-or-swim experimental works, it’s where you can catch showpieces by modern masters and thoroughly vetted living artists before they disappear into private collections or turn up in museums. Dress to impress — and act accordingly.


When: March 3–5 / Friday, Saturday: noon–7pm; Sunday: noon–6pm ($25)
Where: Spring Studios (50 Varick Street, Tribeca, Manhattan)
Falling somewhere between NADA and the Armory Show on the hip-to-safe spectrum, Independent has a tendency to feature a mix of known quantities and pleasant surprises. This year’s slate of 52 exhibitors, most hailing from New York, promises to maintain the fair’s aura of classy eccentricity.

Moving Image

When: February 27–March 2 / Monday–Wednesday 11am–8pm; Thursday: 11am–4pm (free)
Where: Waterfront New York Tunnel (269 Eleventh Avenue, Chelsea, Manhattan)
Moving Image is usually the calmest of Armory Week’s top-tier fairs, where you can go sit and spend time with some excellent video art. However, among this year’s nearly 30 featured works are six virtual reality projects and four augmented reality works, so the user experience won’t be quite as sedentary as in years past (this is a good thing).


When: March 2–5 / Thursday: 4–8pm; Friday, Saturday: 11am–7pm; Sunday: 11am–5pm ($20)
Where: Skylight Clarkson North (572 Washington Street, Soho, Manhattan)
The perennial cool kids fair has moved up from its usual slot during Frieze Week in May to join Armory Week. In addition to its 100 exhibitors, NADA New York boasts a series of talks organized by Kickstarter and a special program on drag performances.


When: March 3–5 / Friday, Saturday: 11am–8pm; Sunday: 11am–7pm ($25)
Where: Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan)
We’d never choose to set foot in Scope, but there’s something comforting about the fact that it’s there every year — this time with 69 exhibitors — showing its reliable mix of “edgy” street art, heavy-handed, selfie-baiting sculpture, tacky photorealist painting, and other tacky wonders.

The Art Show Park Avenue Armory March 1–5, 2017

2016 NYTIMES reviewd
This annual fair, presented by the Art Dealers Association of America, is “pretty manageable and viewer-friendly,” Mr. Johnson said. Its focus is on mainstream American galleries, many of which tend to put on curated or solo shows.

2016 NYTIMES reviewd;
The Armory Show’s affiliate, Volta NY, is smaller and more focused. Its exhibitions, billed as rigorously curated, are by invitation only and feature just one artist each. Getting a sense of one person’s art is more manageable than the sprawling pavilions of larger fairs, Mr. Johnson said, and Volta is a good opportunity to speak with dealers about the works they represent.


About NY art fairs this week ...read in NY TIMES Where to Go Now By JOSHUA BARONE MARCH 1, 2016


.Keep the name and check out their websites....I would add at least...CLIO ART FAIR and I will add also others..like Moving Image

A really good SOURCE of information...Start with this article:BUT to be UPDATED as it is dating 2016


Satellite Fairs

Over the years, smaller art fairs have popped up with niche themes, often reacting to the mainstream. Independent New York, for example, aims to be more of an art exhibition than a trade fair. This year, it opens in its new downtown digs, with 25,000 square feet of open, flexible space.
(From noon to 7 p.m. March 4 and 5; to 6 p.m. on March 6; Spring Studios, 50 Varick Street in Manhattan; tickets sold on-site; independenthq.com/2016/new-york.)

CLIO ART FAIR best DEAL ....not only because FREE Entry

10:00 am - 08:00 pm      Public viewing (FREE Entry) 

Clio Art Fair:
CLIO ART FAIR is a curated fair born with the challenge to launch independent artists and showcase the careers and achievements of already affirmed creative minds.

By specifically targeting artists without any exclusive NYC gallery representation, CLIO ART FAIR focuses attention on the kinds of contemporary art and interventions that are being created by independent artists the world over.

Without the constraints and usual concerns of the art business, these artists have been freed up to use different materials and media and to deviate from accepted art practice definitions. The resulting work being exhibited seeks to foster a dialogue that transcends prescribed geographies, hierarchies, and markets; and to further opportunities for greater expression of new media and ever ground-breaking content.
