Jameel Arts Centre was one of the first contemporary arts institutions in Dubai. The Centre’s multiple gallery spaces are home to curated commissions, projects, and solo and group exhibitions, drawn both from the Art Jameel Collection and through regional and international collaborations.

The Jameel is open daily (except Tuesdays). Entrance is free and all are welcome.

Positioned as a new creative destination in the city, and a hub for educational initiatives and cultural events, Jameel Arts Centre includes an open-access research library dedicated to artists and cultural movements of the Arab world, plus project and commissions spaces, a roof-top terrace, writer’s studio, members’ lounge, restaurant and shop. The Jameel is complemented by Jaddaf Waterfront Sculpture Park, a collaboration with Dubai Holding.

The building is a specially-commissioned, three-storey, multi-disciplinary space that offers a flexible and rich curatorial potential – from intimate spaces for capsule exhibitions through to large galleries with soaring heights for sculptural and installation works.

A selection of large-scale installations and sculptural works, several newly commissioned, are on view on the Centre’s roof terrace and within a series of permanent gardens designed by landscape architect Anouk Vogel. Gallery 9 focuses on artist’s film and video, starting with a work by Jumana Manna.

Visit the Jameel Arts Centre’s page for more details on the exhibitions and programmes.
