In fact of course almost all galleries in the Al Quoz and DIFC area synchronize their exhibition schemes with Art Dubai. Art Dubai officially opens the 19th, with a pre-opening on the 18th. So most galleries in the Alserkal avenue and the Dubai International Financial Centre organise receptions on the 17th with exhibitions that open that day or just prior.
Here is a selection of other openings.
