Situated in Dubai’s industrial quarter, the Avenue is a cluster of architect-designed warehouses. It is home to interspersed public spaces that bring together collaborators from diverse artistic disciplines; encouraging open dialogue, sharing of ideas and a collaborative work ethic that can see these creative ideas come to life.

Spread across 500,000 square feet, they house numerous galleries of international repute, dynamic art spaces, and homegrown cultural initiatives.
