After two years as arts editor for Alef
, the bi-monthly pan-Arab art and fashion magazine that is published in London but focuses on the Middle East, I had finally made it to Dubai, the superwealthy Persian Gulf emirate that is undergoing a dramatic modernization. The occasion for my visit was to curate an Alef
-sponsored exhibition for the second annual Creek Art Fair
, Mar. 15-30, 2008, an edgier satellite to Art Dubai
, Mar. 19-22, 2008.
