Tuesday evening – the day before the eighth edition of Art Dubai opened to the public – several of the pots had already been knocked over and the grass trampled underfoot by the fair's patrons, who may not have realized they were walking though a piece of installation art.That seems to have been the intention behind "The Desired Path," a two-stage work by New York-based Lebanese artist Youmna Chlala.The work's second stage is located a few hundred meters north of the first, beyond the far side of the Madinat Jumeira, at the base of a set of outdoor stairs leading to the Mina al-Salam hotel – the venue of Art Dubai Modern and the fair's Global Art Forum.Chlala is one of 12 artists involved in the 2014 edition of Art Dubai Projects. Held in conjunction with A.i.R Dubai – a residency program run by the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, Tashkeel, Delfina Foundation and Art Dubai – it commissions younger artists to collaborate with a curator to create new site-specific works.
