Husain. While this year’s Bidaya—the emerging gallery spotlight showcase—will go to New York’s Taymour Grahne Gallery.

A key art talk not to be missed will be the panel discussing the Louvre Abu Dhabi, led by its architect, Jean Nouvel. Meanwhile, performance art will include the interactive program, Hours and Colours, which will be performed during the fair at key moments throughout the day and evening.
