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. An eclectic community of local artists along with the "cool kids" of Dubai frequent the avenue, a point of interest for those who want to learn more about the cultures and subcultures burgeoning in the shadow of Dubai's megastructures. Check out the avenue’s website for community-oriented events including talks, exhibits, and movie screenings.
