UAE Art Collector / Global Art Awards / Global Art Agency

Hi, I work for an artist and we have received two “fishy” proposals:

1. UAE Art Collector/Global Art Awards/Global Art Agency – they sent an email pay-to-play proposal to be included in their “Art Book” (cost: between 850-1500 USD). The email made it seem like this is an established publication (published at least once before, in 2017), however, on closer inspection we found out that it has never been published (they keep pushing the deadline). When we asked about last year’s book (there was a call for artists online) – they were dodgy and replied that this is the first one. This enterprise is somehow connected to the Global Art Awards, which are organised by the Global Art Agency (they also organise numerous fairs, all pay-to-play). I wonder if anyone has had any experience with them?

    Global Art Agency has taken deposits from Artists and then ghosted them!! WARNING!!! They have done this for Amsterdam and Oxford!! Now they are also promoting Tokyo.

    I paid for a booth for Amsterdam Art Fair 2022, and I still haven’t heard back from them. They blocked me on social media and didn’t answer my emails. Now they even deleted their website.
    The Owner of Global Art Agency is Joelle Dinnage. Joelle Dinnage is scammer. Now she hides that it’s her agency. She deletes this info from Linkedin and her website. She provides now services to artists, stay away this woman is a scammer.

    I will report them to the police.
