Perve Galeria- 12th Edition



Perve Galeria will be present at the 12th edition of Art Dubai, which runs from March 21 to 24, 2018. We would love if you could join us at the event that takes place at Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai.



This year’s edition of Art Dubai will present a unique lineup of 105 galleries from 48 countries, reaffirming its position as a place of discovery of artists, galleries, and emerging trends worldwide.


Perve Galeria is the only Portuguese representative and integrates Art Dubai Modern (booth M16), a section launched in 2014, dedicated to museum-quality artworks by modern artists that have shown notoriety in the 20th century.


Cruzeiro Seixas (Portugal), Ernesto Shikhani (Mozambique), Manuel Figueira (Cape Verde) and Reinata Sadimba (Mozambique) are the artists presented by Perve Galeria, with a selection of works that suggest a reflection on African artistic creation (more information at: and



From Cruzeiro Seixas, a well-known Portuguese artist, founder of the group “The Surrealists” with M├írio Cesariny, in the 1940s, we present artworks from his contact with the African universe, produced during the 12 years he lived in Angola.



Ernesto Shikhani’s artworks denote the incessant search for new forms of expression, which marked his artistic journey in modern and contemporary African context.



From Manuel Figueira, we present artworks with a surrealist atmosphere, through which the author creates unrepeatable narratives, that always involve a certain human (trans)figuration.
Reinata Sadimba’s sculptures are exemplars of an artistic work determined by this Mozambican author’s personal experiences, which disclose her Makonde origins.


The 12th edition of the international fair dedicated to the contemporary art of Africa, Asia and the Middle East is marked by the inauguration of a new section – Residents – which shows works signed by authors who completed the four-week artistic residence prior to the fair.



As in previous editions, Art Dubai presents the Global Art Forum, the most significant annual conference in the field of the arts; Art Dubai Modern Symposium, focused on the life and work of modern artists; The Room, a daily, immersive and performative, gala dinner; and, finally, the revelation of the Abraaj Group Art Prize.



For any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us. It would be a great privilege for us to count on your presence, so we will await your confirmation of presence through email:, in order to place your invitation at the front desk of the art fair.
