Art galleries are full of inspiration; the most important thing for me is the experience they give me. I absolutely love wandering around places that make me feel like I am in a different era, country, space and dimension. Here are my favourite places of inspiration;
In the heart of DIFC, surrounded by fine restaurants, this area is full of high-end galleries and auction houses. I really love its vibes!
A very artsy area with loads of great galleries and beautiful organic cafes (A4 Space, Nadi and Wild and the Moon,) a cosy cinema and a relaxed atmosphere. The galleries mostly focus on regional art.
Sharjah Art Foundation
A long drive, but really worth it! The Art Foundation has the largest exhibition area from the ones above and amazing architecture. It focuses on local art but also hosts solo shows of famous artists, so always be on the lookout!
Jameel Arts Centre
A large center with wonderfully curated shows and insightful talks, surrounded by beautiful views. There is also a fantastic library!
Dubai Design District
The name says it all! The area is full of creativity, from the spinning chairs, to the swings and much more. There are many inspiring design shops and cute cafes.
