Curated by Omar Kholeif and realised in partnership with Art Jameel (Education Partner) and Edge of Arabia (Cultural Partner), Focus: MENAM examined contemporary cultural and artistic practices from across the MENAM region, reflecting the region’s diversity and dynamism through a series of curated presentations, site specific projects and a dedicated symposium.
Art Jameel supports artists and creative communities. Current initiatives include running heritage institutes and restoration programmes, plus a broad range of arts and educational initiatives for all ages. The organisation’s programmes foster the role of the arts in building open, connected communities; at a time of flux and dramatic societal shifts, this role is understood as more crucial than ever.
Art Jameel’s model is collaborative: major institutional partners include Delfina Foundation, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Locally, the organisation works with individuals and organisations to develop innovative programming that embraces both ancient and new technologies, and encourages entrepreneurship and the development of cultural networks.
The Armory Show is New York’s leading fair for modern and contemporary art.

Once again, the fair will comprise of an acclaimed VIP program, a lively opening night benefit party at the Museum of Modern Art and the engaging Open Forum discussion series. For the fourth year running the fair will be designed by Brooklyn-based architects Bade Stageberg Cox who will transform Piers 92 and 94 along the Hudson River on Manhattan’s west side into a spectacular setting for over 65,000 visitors who come to New York for this principal event in the international art market calendar.
