Dubai’s oldest art gallery Majlis Gallery shutting down


DUBAI – After more than 40 years, the Majlis Gallery, Dubai’s oldest art gallery, is shutting down amid tough market conditions.

The Majlis Gallery, located in Bur Dubai’s Al Fahidi neighbourhood, was founded in 1979 by Alison Collins, an interior designer.

The space was originally where Collins and her family lived for ten years starting in 1978. The villa was later transformed into an exhibit space for paintings.

The gallery is holding its last sale that includes pieces from 50 artists. The sale will run until October 16. ICA/Expat Media
