Don’t be confused by the name: Alserkal Avenue. It’s not an avenue in the typical sense of the word but rather a conglomerate of art warehouses in one walkable space. It is amazing. This was my first trip to the galleries in the warehouse district of Dubai but, it will not be my last.
The space includes established studios, artists residences, places to eat, and pop up shops. It’s in a constant state of evolution. There are young people here interested in supporting and promoting the arts. Everyone I visited in the galleries are friendly and talkative. To make me even happier, there weren’t many people around on Friday midday (holy day here).
Check out their website for more information and to keep up with all the happenings … nearly everyday is something new and every month is a new topic. https://alserkalavenue.ae/en/index.php
Oh yeah, it is free and it is hip.
