The Jameel Arts Centre will be a place for discovery, creativity, meeting and living.


The Vision for Jameel Arts Centre (JAC) is to be a leading institution for the contemporary art and creative economy, promoting emerging arts, artists and creative start-ups from the Middle East & North Africa regions and the rest of the World.


The Mission is to create a thriving contemporary Arts Centre that is home to the Jameel Art Collection, presenting the Jameel Prize Gallery and temporary exhibitions, supporting local creative economy, encouraging cooperation between young artists and creative entrepreneurs, offering professional training and providing a platform for creative ideas and encounters.


In an urban context like Dubai, where everything seems to be designed in order to impress through size and shape, we are now proposing a change of paradigm: instead of competing with size and shape, we have chosen to work with a landscape scale, switching from artificial to natural landscape. In this context, our design strategy is “Simple Multiplicity”: we overlap different gradients of density forming an iconic cube. Through the fractal aggregation of square modules we obtain a significant geometry.


JAC is a place to exchange creative experiences and ideas, a new urban polarity where one meets by day and by night: a place for the People by the People, promoting a sense of Community, sharing common values connected to art and creativity, while respecting and enhancing the different cultural identities of each person.
