Landmarks of Dubai: Alserkal Art District
Part of the old Al Quoz industrial district, centered on Alserkal Avenue, has been regenerated to become Dubai’s main arts hub and is home to some of the city’s most important contemporary art galleries. Established gallery names such as the Green Art Gallery, The Third Line, and the Ayyam Gallery have made their home here, while a host of smaller gallery start-ups have also moved in. The district’s program of rotating collections focuses both on the work of major artists, as well as highlighting new Middle Eastern talent.
This emerging district is also the place to come for fashion and accessory boutiques by local designers, pop-up restaurants, and café life, and it showcases the energetic and youthful buzz of a city, which is usually more noted for its corporate face.
