• Art Jameel


Alongside programmes in the fields of Heritage and Learning, Art Jameel organises and supports initiatives across the arts, often working in collaboration with partners. In Saudi Arabia, we work with the Jeddah Municipality to run the outdoor Jeddah Sculpture Museum, and collaborate with local partners to produce exhibitions – most recently with Banafsajeel and Hafez Gallery to co-produce Tadafuq, involving around 40 artists from across Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. Following the success of the Art Jameel Photography Award, in 2017 we expand our photography programme with a focus on workshops and access to networks and expertise.

Our home in the UAE is currently in Alserkal Avenue, where in March 2017, we launched a Project Space, staging capsule exhibitions – of works from the Art Jameel Collection plus guest curatorial projects – and hosting events as part of our Learning programme.

Internationally, among other programmes, Art Jameel collaborates with the V&A to produce the Jameel Prize, recognising the work of artists who explore traditional Islamic influences through contemporary art.
