In 2014, Art Dubai’s Marker programme is curated by the artists Slavs and Tatars and takes Central Asia and the Caucasus as its focus. Celebrating the complexities of faith, identity and language in these regions, Marker 2014 includes booth exhibitions, educational initiatives and a dynamic new publishing venture.
Marker focuses each year on a particular theme or geography, and epitomises Art Dubai’s role as a fair of discovery and a site for the production and exchange of knowledge and ideas.
The art spaces invited to participate in Marker 2014 range from state institutions to galleries and artist-run initiatives, including ArtEast (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan); Asia Art (Almaty, Kazakhstan); North Caucasus Branch of the National Center for Contemporary Art NCCA, (Vladikavkaz, North Caucasus, Russia); Popiashvili Gvaberidze Window Project (Tbilisi, Georgia); and Yarat (Baku, Azerbaijian).
