Lawrie Shabibi

A contemporary art gallery promoting the works of relevant and innovative contemporary artists from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia

Warehouse 21, Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz 1, Dubai, UAE

Lawrie Shabibi is a contemporary art gallery housed in Dubai’s Alserkal Avenue. The gallery supports the long-term development of the careers of young international contemporary artists, with a focus on those from the Middle East and North Africa, and more recently diasporic artists within the UK.

From its inception, the gallery has also organized art historical exhibitions, working with an older generation of artists from the Middle East and North Africa region. By holding a regular programme of exhibitions, screenings and talks, publishing catalogues and participating in international art fairs, Lawrie Shabibi has in the space of eight years been a forerunner in the development of the contemporary art scene in Dubai. As of 2020 Lawrie Shabibi will have a UK outpost at Cromwell Place in London.
