Contacts & Details
Focused both on emerging and established visual artists from across the world, Abu Dhabi Art Hub serves as a platform for interaction and cross-cultural artistic exchanges between national, regional and international artists.
Abu Dhabi Art Hub encompasses perpetual activity for benefit of the community regarding the visual arts. Support and advancement of art and artists is reflected in the founding of Art Hub in that the facility provides the “live – create – exhibit” platform for artists both locally and globally.
In addition to operating artist in residency programmes for foreign artists, through Friends of Art Hub and Adopt-an-Artist sponsorships, emerging Emirati artists are eligible to participate in residency programs overseas.
The Abu Dhabi Art Hub compound is a purpose-built structure housing a accommodation for artists in residence. Additional areas conducive to creativity include artist studios, workshop facilities, multiple galleries and a large main hall, with a hub café.
