Zawyeh is a contemporary art gallery based in Dubai. It was launched in March 2020 as a tool to present and promote Palestinian contemporary and modern art globally. The wide interest in Palestinian art and the existence of a vibrant Palestinian community in Dubai, was a key behind extending our work to UAE.

Our immense space at Alserkal Avenue provides us with the opportunity to exhibit a selection of artworks in different sizes and formats. It also assists us to interact with a diverse global audience living and visiting the city which transpired to become a lively cultural hub in recent years. We aim to be one of the renowned art galleries in Dubai, and an integral part of the city’s art landscape. The city attracts a diverse number of art galleries and artists from all over the world including art and artists from Palestine, which we represent. Through our presence in Dubai, we seek to reach out to the Palestinian community living in UAE, which has been supportive and interested in connecting with Palestinian art.
