GALLERY STATEMENT

Tabari Artspace, formerly Artspace Dubai, was established in 2003 by art collector Maliha Tabari, with the aim of promoting Middle Eastern art to a global audience. Strategically located in Dubai, the gallery embarked 17 years ago upon an ambitious programme of exhibitions with the aim of cultivating an international community and creating fresh discourses centred around contemporary Middle Eastern art. As a pioneer of this movement, Tabari Artspace played a pivotal role in building the careers of Middle Eastern masters, including Adam Henein, Mohamed Abla, Adel El-Siwi, Hussein Madi and Khaled Zaki, who are today exhibited and collected by such institutions as the British Museum, the Guggenheim (Abu Dhabi) and the Barjeel Art Foundation. Today, Middle Eastern artists are increasingly gaining international recognition with institutions such as LACMA, MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Centre Pompidou collecting and exhibiting their works. As the regional art scene evolves rapidly in front of this new global audience and in line with advancements in technologies, globalisation and shifts in the socio-political climate, so too has Tabari Artspace’s programme and focus. In 2018 the gallery rebranded from Artspace Dubai to Tabari Artspace.
