Dubai is widely acknowledged as the art market hub of the Middle East. An increasing number of galleries are relocating to the UAE to expose their artists to international viewers and collectors. One of them is the Palestinian Zawyeh Gallery founded in 2013 in Ramallah.

The gallery promotes emerging and established artists from Palestine and the diaspora through a varied exhibition program and participation in global fairs and art projects. In March 2020, right at the beginning of the pandemic, its owners decided to make a bold move to expand their reach in opening a second location in Dubai's Alserkal Avenue. In this Dubai arts and culture district, a cluster of contemporary art galleries are joined by music, food, performing arts and homegrown creative entrepreneurs.
