The Majlis Gallery, having
opened its doors in 1989, has become a haven for artists and art lovers from
across the globe. Now holding the title as the first fine art gallery in Dubai,
it houses works by artists from across the Middle East and beyond. Founded by
the late Alison Collins, the Majlis was born out of a love for art, paired with
the realisation that there was an absence of a space for artists to showcase
their work. A Majlis is defined as a meeting place or common ground. Over the
years, it has met that description and performed well beyond it, establishing
itself as a true oasis for creative minds.
The Majlis gallery is
currently housing a brand new exhibition, titled ‘Human Obsession’, which
features works by artist, Ibrahim Al Hamid. The artist explains how 'Faces
are the mirrors of our souls and by reading faces we read our happiness, fears,
ambitions, and obsessions’. Alongside Ibrahim Al Hamid’s feature, we have a
larger general collection of work on display, and beautiful Turkish jewellery
also available for purchase.
Entrance to the gallery is
entirely free and we would like to welcome you to come in for a wander around
this beautiful space. We are open between 10 am - 6 pm Monday-Saturday.
