Alserkal Programming

Established in 2007, Alserkal Avenue has grown to become an essential platform for the development of homegrown artistic and cultural initiatives, supporting a vibrant community of contemporary art galleries and alternative art spaces, together with design, media and industrial studios. Founded by Abdelmonem Bin Eisa Alserkal, it is the region’s foremost arts and culture neighbourhood. In 2015, in addition to its commitment to the community, Alserkal Avenue affirmed its position as an arts organisation with the launch of Alserkal Programming, a platform for exhibitions, public art commissions, performances, films, talks and workshops that critically and creatively investigate themes pertinent to the region’s arts community. Together, these programmes provide a platform to support the development of new ideas, open dialogue and collaboration across disciplines. Fall 2017 will mark the opening of the Alserkal Residency. Created as a platform for artistic and cultural experimentation and exchange, Alserkal Residency seeks to provide the infrastructure and support that would allow cultural practitioners to fully engage with the region.
