During Artweek in March 2017, Art Jameel opened a new Project Space in Alserkal Avenue, Dubai, featuring a year-round programme of exhibitions, workshops and events. This will be our Dubai 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; research studios and educational initiatives aim to bring together creative communities of all ages and nurture experimentation, dialogue and a discursive approach to art and art-making.
As part of a curatorial partnership with Art Dubai for the upcoming edition of Campus Art Dubai (CAD), an educational platform for artists and creatives, Project Space Art Jameel is hosting a six-week experimental summer studio for current CAD members and alumni. The project will conclude with Open Studios taking place August 26 to September 6 where artists will showcase results and developed work to the public.

Past shows at Project Space Art Jameel included Alif Beh (2006-2009) by Hazem El Mestikawy and And yet my mask is powerful 1 by Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme as part of a series titled Collection Focus, allowing for in-depth engagement with single works from the Jameel Art Collection. Our first Research Studio, featuring roundtable talks with the arts and architecture community in the UAE, was devoted to Madrid-based foundation Factum Arte who illustrated their work in new technologies to preserve heritage sites and create works with contemporary artists.
Opening hours: 10am-6pm on Saturday and Monday-Thursday
Sunday: by appointment only
