The Royal College of Art’s RCA Secret Dubai also returns to Art Dubai this year. RCA Secret Dubai is an exhibition and sale of original postcard-sized artworks by regional and internationally acclaimed artists and designers, plus up-and-coming graduates from the Royal College of Art.

Taking place in two venues at Alserkal Avenue and Art Dubai, it’s a chance to get your hands on original works of art for a small price, while supporting students at a formative time in their careers. Each postcard in RCA Secret Dubai is signed only on the back, so collectors don’t know the identity of the artists until they have made their purchases.
