Founded in 2010 by William Lawrie, former Director of Contemporary Middle Eastern art at Christie’s auction house, and Asmaa Al-Shabibi, former Managing Director of the art fair, Art Dubai, Lawrie Shabibi is a contemporary art gallery housed in a 3000 square foot warehouse in Dubai’s Al-Quoz industrial area.
Our focus is to promote contemporary art from the Middle East, North Africa, South and Central Asia regionally and internationally, and to serve as a platform for both emerging and established artists from this region and its diaspora.
Through our exhibition programme we engage the public with artists whose works impart a cultural and political discourse, a powerful aesthetic and a hint of the poetic.
