How One Emirati Wants to Make Art International
Dyala Nusseibeh concedes that there is an art fair “almost every week in the world”. The competition is, therefore, fierce, but that has not prevented the director of the Art International fair in Istanbul – the third edition of which was held at the weekend – from aiming to be among “the top five that people go to”.
It is a lofty goal. What makes her aspirations even more impressive is the fact that Art International is barely three years old and its 25,000 visitors are still a long way from the 75,000 drawn to Art Basel in Switzerland every year or the 50,000 who flock to Art Basel Miami.
Nor is it as established as Frieze in London, the 42-year-old Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain in Paris nor The European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht. Details
