was founded in 1995 and was amongst the first galleries to exhibit Arab art in Dubai. The Gallery played a vital role in introducing modern Arab art to the city and beyond and in nurturing the establishment of the city’s earliest collector base. Promoting the works of the region’s generation of pioneering modern artists from across the Middle East and North Africa including Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, UAE, and Morocco, Green Art was also active in launching the careers of emerging artists during that period. Artists represented during that period include Syrian pioneers Fateh Moudarres and Louay Kayyali, Iraqi artists Ismail Fattah and Dia Azzawi and Moroccan artist Hakim Ghazali. Many of these artists have now reached unprecedented recognition both regionally and internationally.
Leveraging its long and rich history in the market, Green Art Gallery will also begin to represent and showcase contemporary artists from the region. In this manner the Gallery would become one of the few spaces whose knowledge and expertise has spanned the Arab art movement from modernism and will continue to promote the newest tendencies in the regional contemporary art practices, with relevant and dynamic programming.
Green Art Gallery aims to become not only an exhibition space, but also as a supporter and point of reference for the regional trends in modern and contemporary art practices.
