Jameel Arts Centre in Dubai, one of the first not-for-profit contemporary arts institutions in the city. The Centre will be located on Dubai Creek, at the tip of Culture Village. The 10,000-square-metre complex will be home to multiple gallery spaces and an open-access research library dedicated to artists and cultural movements of the Arab world.
The Jameel Gallery at Victoria and Albert Museum houses over 400 objects, including ceramics, textiles, carpets, metalwork, glass and woodwork, which date from the great days of the Islamic caliphate of the 8th and 9th centuries to the years preceding the First World War.
Launched in 2009 by Art Jameel, the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts and the Cultural Development Fund of Egypt, the Jameel House of Traditional Arts / Cairo is a major educational institute for the teaching of traditional arts.
Opened in 2015 in a traditional coral-stone house in the heart of the Old Town (Al-Balad) of Jeddah as a partnership between Art Jameel and the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, the Jameel House of Traditional Arts / Jeddah is a major educational programme that focuses on traditional arts.
Currently under development on the estate of Dumfries House in Scotland, the Jameel House of Traditional Arts and Building Skills / Scotland is a fully-equipped, residential institute for teaching the traditional arts, set in the natural beauty of rural Ayrshire. It will be the largest traditional arts institute in the world.
Project Space Art Jameel, in Alserkal Avenue, Dubai, features a year-round programme of art exhibitions, studios, workshops and events. The Space is Art Jameel’s temporary home until the Jameel Arts Centre opens in the winter of 2018. While some shows feature works from the Jameel Art Collection, others are developed in collaboration with partner institutions.
In the 1970s, Jeddah’s mayor, Mohammed Said Farsi, initiated the ‘Jeddah Beautification Project’ and purchased more than 400 sculptures. The collection is one of the world’s most extensive focussed on public art. Art Jameel, in collaboration with Jeddah Municipality, decided to not only restore some of the sculptures but also to increase their prominence by creating an open-air sculpture museum, showcasing 20 works in a seven square kilometre park along the middle Corniche in Jeddah, known locally as ‘Al Hamraa’.
