Jameel Arts Centre

Inaugurated in November 2018, the centre is one of the first art institutions in Dubai

Jameel Arts Centre, Jaddaf Waterfront, Dubai, UAE

Jameel Arts Centre is an independent space dedicated to promoting contemporary art through an innovative cultural programme and engaging activities addressed to the entire community. Aimed to be a leading contemporary art institution for the UAE, the Middle East and South Asia region and beyond, the centre hosts a varied programme which includes solo and group exhibitions, commissions and projects drawn both from the Art Jameel collection and external collaborations, and promotes artists from the region and outside.

The centre was founded and supported by Art Jameel, an independent organisation which operates in order to nurture contemporary art practice and protect the cultural heritage of the UAE region and beyond.

Located in Jaddaf Waterfront, Dubai, the architectural complex was designed by the UK-based Serie Architects led by principal Christopher Lee. Besides the exhibit spaces, it hosts also an open-access library and research centre, a restaurant, a shop, a rooftop terrace designed for installations, film screenings and events and dedicated projects and events spaces.
