About the Museum

The Barjeel Art Foundation, housed within the Maraya Art Centre, is an independent, UAE-based initiative established to manage, preserve and exhibit an extensive collection of Modern and Contemporary Arab Art. The foundation’s guiding principle is to contribute to the intellectual development of the art scene in the Gulf region by building a prominent, publicly accessible art collection in the UAE.

Part of this objective involves developing a public platform to foster nuanced dialogue about contemporary art practices in the Arab world. Through in-house exhibitions, international artwork loans, print and online publications and interactive public programmes through collaborations with educational institutions, museums and cultural initiatives the Barjeel Art Foundation strives to become an informative resource for contemporary art from the Arab world and its diaspora, both locally and internationally.
