A hub for artists and creativity, Alserkal Avenue’s expansion marks a new frontier for the art and culture scene in Dubai. The first international gallery to open its doors in the avenue is Leila Heller Gallery from New York. At Savoir Flair, here are three reasons why this gallery is on our must-see list.
1. The newly-minted Leila Heller Gallery is now the largest commercial gallery space in the GCC with over 11,000 square meters of space.
2. You can witness Ghada Amer’s first solo exhibition, Earth. Love. Fire., in nearly two decades. It’s a collection of 28 ceramic paintings and abstract sculptures including Amer’s iconic stainless steel sculptures.
3. Known for his neo-conceptual artwork and experimental craftsmanship gleaned from his global travels, Belgian artist Wim Delvoye’s first exhibition in the UAE features a series of sculptural works including suitcases embellished with metalwork and laser-cut tires.
