The eighth edition of Art Dubai takes place March 19-22, 2014, at Madinat Jumeirah.

Shirin Gallery will present rarely-seen works by noted cartoonist, Ardeshir Mohasses (1938-2008) as part of the newly-launched Modern section of Art Dubai 2014.
Known for bitingly critical humor, his illustrations turned an anti-sentimental gaze on scenes of quotidian and political life, exemplifying satire's pivotal place as means of coded political critique within the development of modernist movements. Curated by Ava Ansari and Molly Kleiman, the exhibition will present original drawings alongside publications in which these cartoons appeared, and will include a publication produced for the occasion.
