Located in The Yard at the heart of Alserkal Avenue, the Tashkeel Gallery presents contemporary art and design rooted in the UAE. A year-round programme of exhibitions featuring new work conceived and produced by UAE-based practitioners is accompanied by tours, talks and workshops to engage collectors, creatives and the wider public. In addition, the Tashkeel Shop offers a wide range of affordable, UAE-made accessories, clothing, jewellery and homeware alongside a selection of books and arts & crafts supplies.
Tashkeel is an incubator for professional visual art and design practitioners living and working in the United Arab Emirates. It nurtures the growth of contemporary art and design thereby contributing to the country's creative and cultural industries. Established in Dubai in 2008 by Sheikha Lateefa bint Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Tashkeel's facilities enable production, experimentation and discourse. Its annual programme of training, residencies, workshops, talks, exhibitions, international collaborations and publications aims to further practitioner development, public engagement and lifelong learning.
