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.

  • Great cultural hub
    This is a great little creative hub within the seemingly uninteresting warehouse district of Al Quoz. Getting there can be a bit tricky via the metro (esp. walking in the heat), so I'd recommend catching a cab. The gallery spaces are well worth a couple of hours and there are nice cafes to chill out in between - or work at if you're a digital nomad :)

  • Dubai Art Week 2019
    During the Dubai Art Week 2019 (March) the Alserkal Avenue has a lot of activities and exhibitions. It is worth to visit. Just always get informed if you are in a gallery or art institutions or artist space, as their is a different approach. You can see group shows and solo shows and there is an information desk with maps and calendar of the events. Every gallery has a welcoming text or if you are lucky the staff can give you an introduction!

  • An artists' haven in an unexpected location
    Alserkal Avenue was a delightful place- a welcome change from the extremes of Dubai. Great art, beautiful gallery spaces and interesting retail. A must see for all art lovers.
