New exhibition space at Deira City Centre will promote upcoming local artists

Fancy checking out a bit of art while you shop? Under the theme of ‘Love Art’, Deira City Centre is committed to promoting the local and regional arts scene by lending dedicated creative and exhibition space in key areas of the mall, at no charge.

Recently, Deira City Centre in partnership with Glory Art Gallery featured an emerging contemporary artist, Arshad Hussain. Pakistani-born but residing in Dubai, Arshad is a shining talent among the young-generation artists in the regional arts scene with his use of vibrant colours and varying media.

Art has also been featured in Deira City Centre’s dedicated creative space, the Bridge Gallery which is located in the newly opened Metro Link area and will showcase photography, painting and design exhibitions.

 “With ‘Love Art’, our new arts and culture initiative, Deira City Centre is providing a stepping stone for local and regional artists wanting to showcase their artwork,” said Fuad Najjar, Senior Asset Director, Asset Management, Shopping Malls. “The growing arts scene in Dubai is continually fostering new talent, as is the need for new, exhibition spaces. As part of our commitment to promoting up-and-coming artists, we will continue to work with art galleries, exhibition organisers and independent photographers, painters and all interested artists to leverage ‘Love Art’ and share their works in our mall, providing an enhanced experience for our visitors.” 

Artists interested in showcasing their works for exhibition only at Deira City Centre can contact: for more information. The mall does not charge for this space, nor are any fees paid to artists for their exhibitions.
