At the cross­roads of di­ver­sity and bur­geon­ing artis­tic ac­tiv­ity in that re­gion of the world, Dubai is the most sig­nif­i­cant art cap­i­tal of the Mid­dle East, Africa and South Asia. It is an in­ter­na­tional re­pute, which has man­aged to find recog­ni­tion by al­ly­ing with Art Dubai, a lead­ing an­nual art fair, whose 11th edition will take place from March 15 to 18, 2017. In 2016, this must-see event cel­e­brated its ten years with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of 500 artists, 94 gal­leries from 40 coun­tries, and a pub­lic of around 30,000 visi­tors, cu­ra­tors, col­lec­tors and spe­cial­ists from all over the world. In ad­di­tion to ex­hi­bi­tions, Art Dubai also fea­tures film pro­jec­tions and per­for­mances, as well as a not-for-profit pro­gram, which in­cludes grants, artists’ and cu­ra­tors’ res­i­den­cies, ed­u­ca­tional work­shops, and more. Also worth men­tion­ing is the Abraaj Group Art Prize, spon­sored by the fair’s name­sake part­ner, as well as the hugely pop­u­lar de­bates at the Global Art Fo­rum. From May 6 to 28, 2017, the city of Mont­pel­lier in the south of France is cel­e­brat­ing young, emerg­ing tal­ent of European pho­tog­ra­phy. Since its 2001 in­cep­tion in the his­tor­i­cal stu­dent district of Bou­ton­net, As­so­ci­a­tion Grain d'Im­age has or­ga­nized the Boutographies Fes­ti­val, which has grown fu­ri­ously ever since. Re­lo­cated for the last two years to the Panacée Art Cen­ter, the pho­tog­ra­phers of to­mor­row will gather in the 600 square-me­tre Pav­il­lion Pop­u­laire on the Charles de Gaulle Esplanade. For the 17th edition, the or­ga­niz­ers have en­vi­sioned 3 com­pelling weeks of ex­hi­bi­tions, open­ings, and artist talks, but also a ros­ter of pres­ti­gious awards.
