Al Serkal Avenue
This place is definitely a must-go-to for anyone visiting Dubai.
As part of the Art Dubai gallery tours, we went on a visit to the coolest galleries in Al Serkal Avenue, one of my favorite spots in Dubai.
Loved the installation 'Under' by artist Hale Tenger, and enjoyed the concept being explained to me in detail by the artist herself. It was also great chatting with the founder of Al Serkal, the visionary Abdul Monem Al Serkal; an interesting and down to earth personality, with a project that is both artistically and culturally extremely commendable.
Another endeavor I was introduced to and fell in love with, was the pop-up project 'Cultural Narratives' by Selections Art magazine, showcasing the works of Arab and Middle Eastern artists, in small format, not to sell but merely to take one through a cultural journey of the Arab world, while exposing the work of these artists to art lovers from all over the globe. I chatted with the founder and editor-in-chief of the magazine Rima Nasser, and she Kindly explained their amazing initiative.
