Art Jameel

Art Jameel is a not-for-profit organisation that fosters contemporary art practice, cultural heritage protection, and creative entrepreneurship across the Middle East, North Africa,Turkey and beyond.

The organisation’s model is collaborative: major institutional partners include the V&A Museum, the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Locally, the foundation works with individuals and organisations to develop innovative programming that embraces debate, experimentation and exchange, focussing on the fields of art, education, and heritage.


Project Space Art Jameel is located in The Yard and realised with the kind support of Alserkal Avenue. It currently serves as a satellite location for Art Jameel through the end of 2018 and offers a year-round programme of exhibitions, workshops and events.


The Jameel Arts Centre (set to open in 2018) is one of the first not-for-profit contemporary art institutions in Dubai. The 10,000 square meter complex is a multidisciplinary space dedicated to the display, promotion and creation of art from across the Middle East and beyond, featuring curated exhibitions that draw on the Jameel Art Collection, a library and research centre in addition to on-going residency programmes for artists, writers and researchers.
