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.

  • Art browsing
    Saw this on the internet and thought it would be worth a visit before the weather sends us all into “hibernation”! Definitely came up to my expectations and was an interesting afternoon browsing different art galleries, furniture and accessories stores, art workshops and small eateries. Nightjar Coffee was a delight for my coffee buds, great ambience and food too. The concept of housing all these different products in warehouses is unique and a great concept. Dubai never disappoints!

  • Brimming with art galleries, small cafes
    Unexpected location of art galleries housed in large warehouses. But excellently designed and very unique. We visited most of the galleries here and there were interesting displays. In between are cafe serving specialty coffees and light bites. Its all very well laid out with quirky seating to rest while strolling around.
