Art Galleries

While there’s nothing like the Tate or the Louvre in Dubai yet, there are a number of galleries that have interesting exhibitions of art and traditional Arabic artefacts, and more are springing up, particularly in the Al Qouz area. Most operate as a shop and a gallery, but some also provide studios for artists and are involved in the promotion of art within the emirates.

The Majlis Gallery, The Courtyard and the XVA Gallery are all worth visiting for their architecture alone; they provide striking locations in which you can enjoy a wide range of art, both local and international, while at Opera Gallery you’ll find the odd Renoir and Picasso. Many art shops also have galleries as well.
