10 things to do in Dubai this week

Rag‘n’Bone Man
Human, the debut album by soul and blues artist Rory Graham (AKA Rag’n’Bone Man), was immediately certified gold when it dropped in February 2017. Three weeks later, it went platinum after spending two weeks at number one in the UK charts. In just over a year, he’s garnered a serious fan base. He won two BRIT awards – “British Breakthrough Act” and “Choice Award” – and went on to perform at sold-out tours across Britain and Europe. Now he’s bringing his talent to the Dubai Opera stage, where we’ll be treated to a one-off performance of some of his best hits to date. Sure, he might only be human, but this is going to be an extraordinary night. He’ll be supported beforehand by the UAE’s own super group Abri and the Dreamfleet (we suggest you take a listen to their song “We Fly”). Tickets start from AED195.
When: Friday, March 23
Where: Dubai Opera, Downtown Dubai

Art Dubai
The exhibition, returning for its 12th edition, will feature 105 galleries from 48 countries and is delivered in such an approachable way, that you needn’t feel that dread of feeling like a cultural outcast. Stretched out across the Madinat Jumeirah, you’re free to take a walk around the portraits, installations and more. You’ll find the galleries split across three categories; Contemporary, Modern and Residents.
When: March 21-24
Where: Madinat Jumeirah
#Stealing Sadness by Majd Kurdieh
The second solo exhibition of Majd Kurdieh, being held at The Workshop Dubai, will present a new collection of pieces featuring “Fasaeen & The Very Scary Butterfly Gang”.

When: Until April 12
