"Art Dubai wanted to take 'The Room' out of the room and make it more public," Barrak Alzaid recalled.More immediately, GCC is a child of Art Dubai, having coalesced into self-consciousness during the fair's 2013 edition.A relatively recent addition to the emirate's yearly art fair, "The Room" has commissioned art groups to stage food-themed performances for fair guests. Its first two editions enclosed the art within the gracious confines of the Mina A'Salam hotel, near the fair venue.The third edition of "The Room," "Good Morning GCC," departed from the exclusive air of these early iterations. "GMGCC" made this edition of "The Room" a moveable feast, with morning and evening segments (respectively, Good Morning GCC and GCC After Dark) held every day of the fair. Each episode of "GMGCC" featured a different cultural figure. Alzaid said GCC wanted to bring in these populist elements in order "to inject different notions of public and public accessibility into a fair that, in a lot of ways, isn't really for the general public.Central as it is to the premises of this edition of "The Room," Alzaid notes there is no GCC-wide agreement on how the public is constituted.
