Since the inception of DIFC, art galleries have been an integral part of the Centre’s community. Galleries add to the beauty of the district and reinforce the international character of the Centre.
Reflecting the long-standing synergies between art and finance, galleries are part of DIFC’s broader commitment to the arts. Other examples include an Art Integration Programme that hosts thought-provoking exhibitions and places beautiful works of art throughout the district. This growing collection of art complements the iconic architecture and landscaping.
A highlight of Dubai’s art and culture calendar and one of DIFC’s most anticipated events is the twice-yearly Art Nights @ Gate Village. Galleries often launch new exhibits to coincide with the event. Thousands of attendees are drawn by the eclectic and lively mix of music performances, art shows, delicious food and exciting mix of attendees in the pedestrian-only Gate Village district.
DIFC is the unrivalled financial hub of the region, offering a straightforward commercial licensing and operating environment ideal for all types of art gallery concepts.
