With the energetic Malini Gulrajani at the helm, this gallery has brought some of the foremost names in India’s contemporary art scene to Dubai since 2009. Gilrajani has recently expanded her focus to include emerging Emirati and Middle Eastern artists. Artworks are exhibited in two large airy galleries; there is also an audiovisual room and shop specialising in art books and catalogues.
