to make the most of the fair

Wear flats. The fair is spread across the three large halls of the Ma­narat Al Saadiyat and an out­door area, so you will need to do a lot of walk­ing.

Stay hy­drated. Al­though the Novem­ber weather is usu­ally favourable, a day’s art view­ing is thirsty work. Take a bot­tle of water and be sure to re­fuel at the fair’s on-site café.

Don’t be shy. Gal­lerists are more than happy to an­swer ques­tions. Don’t feel put off by hefty price tags or fear of sound­ing ig­no­rant. Art fairs are for learn­ing about artists and the gal­lerists are founts of in­for­ma­tion.

Take pic­tures. If you feel over­whelmed by the amount there is to take in, pull out your phone, take a snap of the art and the la­bel and look it up when you get home.
