Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC)
Formerly known as Artspace Dubai, Tabari Artspace was set up in 2003 by collector Maliha Tabari. Her aim was and has always been to promote Middle Eastern art to a global audience, helping to build emerging artists’ careers within the region and further afar. The gallery is based in Dubai’s upscale financial district, offering a programme of regular exhibitions and representing artists like Lebanese painter Tagreed Darghouth, Palestinian visual artist Hazem Harb and Egyptian Modernist sculptor Khaled Zaki to name a few.
“As our geographical borders blur in our era of mass migration, art has the ability to capture and communicate key social issues that are relevant for all,” Tabari writes on the gallery’s website.
