ArtBAB is Bahrain’s Foremost International Art Fair

ArtBAB 2020, Art Bahrain Across Borders, is Bahrain’s foremost international art fair with the mission to attract leading international galleries to the Kingdom, so powering the expansion of the art market whilst facilitating the development of local Bahraini artists. In this sense, ArtBAB is the bridge between Bahrain and the world, and the narrative of each fair will reflect this.

ArtBAB reinforces Bahrain’s position in the Gulf as a regional arts hub, inspiring entrepreneurship, art education and local skills development. Alongside the fair, ArtBAB continues its highly successful international Artist Development Programme which focuses on connecting the art of Bahrain to the global art community and vice versa.

OUR AIM

Bahrain Across Borders aims to attract leading international galleries to the Kingdom. It focuses on powering the expansion of the art market while easing the development of local Bahraini artists. Art Select team has invested everything in this venture when they conceived its prototype back in 2015. After its first edition, they took a year and added a vertical of artists during ArtBAB’s launch in 2016.
