 “We are honored to be partnering with ArtBAB and to have ArtBAB as our Host Sponsor for our second edition. This partnership will add a complete new dimension to Bahrain's foremost international art fair and marks UNFOLD's foray into the international art fair market. Our 2nd Annual UNFOLD Art XChange will also be a testament of how UNFOLD is transforming beyond a regular talks program into the world's first B2B contemporary art summit. We are very excited about this upcoming edition as it will also be the first edition where we will launch an art-tech space on Virtual Reality alongside the talks program."
