From Damascus to Beirut, from Doha to Dubai: art is hot and happening. After many visits to those cities I came to realise that art from this region is underexposed. The region however is in full swing! Important art fairs, dozens of new galleries have seen the light. The artscene is booming.
This rapid evolution of Middle Eastern contemporary and modern art is boosted by the easiness of webcommunication, new media, publications and collectors. With my gallery, ME Art Gallery Amsterdam I want to get this region more in the picture in Europe, so it gets the attention an appreciation it deserves.
