Al Quoz art galleries
Area: Al Quoz, Dubai
Although Al Quoz does not exactly hold the usual Dubai glamour, with cement factories, labour camps and extreme dust, it is here where the local Dubai art scene took hold.
As in other big world cities it is not unusual for artists to flourish in cutting edge spaces and Dubai is no different. In fact, the warehouses in this area provide the ideal wide empty spaces that make for perfect exhibition venues.
Contemporary art by budding artists from the region can be found here. Gallery names such as Art Sawa, Ayyam Gallery, Shelter, Gallery Isabelle Van Den Eynde, Flying House and The Third Line are worth looking out for.
The jamjar gallery offers an ArtintheCity ArtBus which takes visitors around to various art venues in the city.
