ABU DHABI.- Abu Dhabi Art has announced its galleries for 2012; including new highlight exhibitors and an 80% return rate from last year.

Again held in the Saadiyat Cultural District, future home of Louvre Abu Dhabi, Zayed National Museum, and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, it takes place from 7–10 November.

Now in its fourth edition, it is organised by the new Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority* and sponsored by BVLGARI.

"You can see from the calibre of galleries we have again this year, that it was a difficult decision to select a small number from the exceptional submissions, to fit with our boutique platform. We think the line-up reflects our goal—to show museum-quality work in an iconic setting," says Rita Aoun-Abdo, Executive Director.

The 2012 edition includes 50 galleries, representing approximately 400 artists from 20 countries including 10 new galleries.

Signature, the section presenting emerging artists in a solo show is back again and Beyond returns to show large sculptures, site specific installations, public art works, and performance art.

The emerging gallery selected for Abu Dhabi Art's Bidaya section (meaning 'beginning' in Arabic) is CDA Projects from Istanbul who will showcase a range of artists including Adel Abidin and young Turkish artists such as Burçak Bingöl and Zeynep Kayan.

Participating galleries include:

AB Gallery, Agial Art Gallery, Art Sawa, ARTSPACE, Atassi Gallery, Athr Gallery, Ayyam Gallery, Bait Muzna Gallery, CDA Projects, David Zwirner, Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art, L.L.C, Gagosian Gallery, Galerie Brigitte Schenk, Galerie El Marsa, Galerie Enrico Navarra, Galerie GP & N Vallois, Galerie Janine Rubeiz, Galerie Jérôme de Noirmont, Galerie Kashya Hildebrand, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Galleria Continua, Hanart TZ Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, Horrach Moya, Hunar Gallery, kamel mennour, Kerlin Gallery, Kukje Gallery / Tina Kim Gallery, Lam Art Gallery, Leila Heller Gallery, Lisson Gallery, Meem Gallery, October Gallery, Ota Fine Arts, Paul Stolper Gallery, Sfeir-Semler, Simon Lee Gallery, The Breeder, The Park Gallery, The Third Line, Tina Keng Gallery, Tony Shafrazi Gallery, Waterhouse & Dodd
