Established in 2008, Carbon 12 was the first gallery in the region to initiate a comprehensive, firmly global, program of institution-grade artists.

Internationally active, Carbon 12 promotes both established and emerging artists to the UAE contemporary art scene, supplementing its 6 – 8 annual exhibitions with diverse contextual activities including publications and talks that actively engage the public and educational institutions.
