Abu Dhabi’s history is a long, intricate story, with glittering jewels, nomadic tribes and a love of the indulgent, but its present and future contributions to the world of art and its own culture are as incredible.
Cultivating its own island of culture, Saadiyat, has meant that Abu Dhabi is able to bring to the Middle East some of the greatest pieces of art around the world, and from its own home shores. Combining eastern and western influences, Abu Dhabi’s role in art and modern culture is unlike anywhere else.
From the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi to the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Zayed National Museum and the Maritime Museum, Abu Dhabi is set to become a major world player when it comes to showcasing collections of global importance.
Set to become a global hub of culture and art, the progress of the island’s construction is an exciting time for all art enthusiasts around the world – as well as potential visitors, who will be given the opportunity to see rare masterpieces in the flesh.
