Discover amazing local artists
Alserkal Avenue now hosts more than 40 concepts, including 20 permanent art spaces such as the multi-purpose Rem Koolhaas-designed Concrete project space by world-famous Dutch architects, OMA.
The first space to open when the hub launched in 2008 was Syrian-owned Ayyam Gallery, renowned for its support of Syrian artists whose works tackle topics such as war and identity. On the other end of the spectrum, a private collection of European and American post-minimal works from the 60s through to the 90s can be viewed at Jean Paul Najar Foundation. Meanwhile, the Green Art Gallery is home to contemporary and emerging artists, from the Middle East, Turkey, South Asia and beyond. It actively launches artists in the region, contributing to making Dubai the cultural heartbeat of the region.
Other notable art spaces includes Salsali Private Museum, the region's first gallery for contemporary Middle Eastern art, and Carbon 12 Dubai, which rotates exhibitions of international artists and a high-energy calendar of upcoming art and culture events.
