Alserkal Avenue, located in Dubaiís warehouse district of Al Quoz, was founded by Abdelmonem Bin Eisa Alserkal to encourage and invite galleries and creatives alike to be a part of the first organically grown art hub in Dubai.
Some of the galleries located on the venue include: Salsali Private Museum, Ayyam Gallery, Carbon12, Etemad Gallery, Gallery Isabelle Van Den Eynde, Green Art Gallery, James Clar, Lawrie Shabibi, Mojo, and Gulf Photo Plus. The cluster enables people to hop from one to the other and explore the artwork of different artists from across the globe within one block.
