Understanding Dubai

Surely there's more to Dubai than colossal skyscrapers and man-made islands, right?
In today's Presentation of the Day, "Understanding Dubai" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92, Ahmed & Rashid Bin Shabib (creators of Middle Eastern lifestyle, design, and travel magazine Brownbook) show us that the United Arab Emirates hosts this amazing urban center in rapid development, and profiles the growth of not only infrastructure, but the maturation of the arts and culture in the region as well.

About the City's Organizers

  • Alserkal Avenue

    Established in 2007, Alserkal Avenue is the foremost contemporary arts and culture neighbourhood in the MENASA region. Located in Al Quoz (an industrial area in Dubai), the Avenue is home to 16 contemporary art galleries and not-for-profit spaces and over 40 creative businesses, including a black box theatre, independent cinema house, artist studios, and performance venues. 2015 saw the launch of the Alserkal Avenue expansion, doubling our footprint to 500,000 square feet. The Avenue had grown organically through the years and many new creative organisations became part of the community. The space where the expansion came up was an old marble factory that wasn’t in use anymore. We began to think of ways to transform this space into a home for all forms of creativity. Along with diversifying our curated community, we welcomed the first international art galleries to open in the Emirates - Leila Heller Gallery from New York and Custot Gallery from London/Paris.
