Alserkal Avenue: Art and Community in Dubai
Housed in Dubai’s industrial area, Alserkal Avenue is a collection of warehouses that has come to be the nucleus of Dubai's art scene. Home to several galleries and exhibition spaces, Alserkal is a must-see for art lovers and connoisseurs. Frequented by an eclectic community of local artists and the 'cool kids' of Dubai, the avenue is revealing for those interested in the cultures and subcultures burgeoning in the shadow of Dubai's megastructures and the stereotypes around the city's people. Check out the Avenue’s website for its programming, and come through to the community-oriented events be it a talk, an exhibit or a movie screening.
