Etihad Modern Art Gallery is located in Al Bateen, at the heart of Abu Dhabi. Art enthusiasts found in the Etihad Gallery an electrifying and modern independent gallery that is worth visiting. Exhibitions put emphasis on talents from the Middle East, but they also exhibit works by foreign artists. After seeing the exhibits, you may go to a restaurant nearby, or to elegantly creative Art House Café, ran by the gallery owners. Unusual décor and striking works of art complement walls together with colourful furniture made of modified items, such as tables and chairs for oil barrels, which poses striking atmosphere. Exhibitions are varied monthly.
The EMGA’s goal is to continually develop the art scene in Abu Dhabi, as well as to promote emirates’ tradition, culture and art to international audience. They aim to establish a rapport with the public and introduce new cultural concepts.
Entrance to the gallery is FREE of charge
