Art Galleries

The internationally-recognised Louvre and the Guggenheim of Saadiyat’s budding Cultural District may be a few years from completion, but in the meantime there’s a growing art scene that’s already attracting local and international talent to the UAE capital. A number of galleries have interesting exhibitions of art and traditional Arabic artefacts. Most operate as a combined shop and gallery, but some also provide studios for artists and are involved in the promotion of art within the UAE. Many exhibitions are staged in the city’s more upscale hotels, which makes it very convenient to be a culture vulture.
