Kaneka Subberwal, Co-founder of ArtBahrain says, “It is wonderful to have Janet, Renaud and Dr Raghuvanshi on board with us at ArtBahrain. All three have a world-class depth of knowledge of Middle Eastern culture, I am confident this can help stimulate ArtBahrain further as the leading international platform for artists in the Middle East and across the globe.” The event is set to be a culminating point for artists, art collectors and art lovers. Internationally minded, the art fair will serve as a platform where artists and galleries from around the world will share space, ideas and inspiration with local artists. www.art-bahrain.com
