Green Art Gallery has been active in the region for nearly four decades and has had the privilege of bearing witness to the tremendous transformations in the regional art scene. Starting from the late 1980s in Homs, Syria, the gallery then opened in Dubai in 1995 with a programme focused on Arab Modernism.

Now in its second generation and its newest form, Green Art Gallery re-launched in 2010 as a contemporary art space in Alserkal Avenue. Its programme features artists working across diverse media, whose practices are rigorously researched, idea-led and representative of our current moment. The gallery represents a multi-generational mix of artists from the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia and beyond, including Turkish artists Hale Tenger and Hera Buyuktascian; Iranian artists Kamrooz Aram, Nazgol Ansarinia and Maryam Hoseini; and Shadi Habib Allah, Seher Shah, Ana Mazzei and Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, who are Palestinian, Pakistani, Brazilian and Venezuelan respectively. In this geographic mix, the gallery reflects Dubai’s position as a cosmopolitan and global artistic hub.
