Alserkal Avenue

Explore Dubai's quirky and vibrant art culture

Alserkal Avenue is an area which has witnessed a significant overhaul in recent years. It’s taken what was an industrial area comprising 39 warehouses, and transformed them into one of the major art and expressionism hubs in the emirate.

In doing so, a vibrant culture of creativity and individualism has burst onto Dubai’s social scene.

Since starting off as single gallery in 2008, the word caught on and other galleries moved into the area. The place grew and became a regular parade of gallery exhibits and displays of contemporary artwork.

It’s the first such precinct to exist in the United Arab Emirates and comes under the guidance of Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate winner Rem Koolhaas.

Today, the precinct hosts a variety of exhibitions, talks, panel discussions, film screenings, Young Collector’s Auctions and community-based festivals celebrating the arts, food and creativity.

As well as showcasing the work of talented and emerging artists, the area frequently invites muses from around the world. They design existing exhibits which have been popular elsewhere and also to develop brand new masterpieces with a distinct Emirati flair.

Beyond such leading galleries as Carbon 12 Dubai, Isabelle Van den Eynde Gallery and Green, you'll also find Salsali Private Museum, Dubai's first private museum, and many restaurants and cafés.

Visit the contemporary art galleries and creative community spaces and explore the photography, design and music scene of Dubai.

  • Artist community
    Alserkal Avenue is more like a community where people have started there artistic business or others who are just there to work on a school project or work outside office. The cafes are nice with there own unique touch when it comes to interior design. The vibe is really peaceful and calm since most of the people and visitors are artists. Enjoy the community and keep smiling coz everyone will tend to smile over there

  • An Art Lover's Paradise
    I went to Alserkal on Ramadan evening. The team was nice enough to offer a free tour of the vicinity which I thoroughly enjoyed. If you're in the area, don't miss the chance to visit mirzam! I must have tried all of their chocolate bars in store. Moreover, the place really do have interesting stores (the vintage car store was a hit, my friend and I loved the place!) and galleries. All in all, the place was worth passing by especially if you love art.

  • Well worth a Visit
    A lot of taxi drivers are not familiar with this art hot spot. We used the Metro to Emirates Towers and then went on foot to the galleries in the Noor Bank complex. This is home to several interesting galleries with innovative artwork from around the world. Photography was allowed in all the galleries we visited. To get to Alserkal Avenue we used a taxi and he had to use his GPS to locate this warehouse complex. There are some stunning galleries with some well known artists such as Kenny Scharf exhibiting. We spent a long time just wandering from gallery to gallery with occasional stops for refreshments in the same area. If you are at all interested in mainly modern art I am sure you will enjoy a visit to the Al Quoz district.
