Etihad Modern Art Gallery (EMAG) is a multi-purpose contemporary art space and café in the heart of the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi.

H.E. Khaled Siddiq Al Mutawaa, the owner, envisioned a welcoming and adaptable art venue available to everybody, encouraging the promotion, discussion, and growing awareness of the Emirati art scene.
Since its inception in 2013, EMAG has hosted important art exhibits as well as local historical exhibitions, forging connections with the worldwide art scene and academic institutions.
We did so by inviting foreign artists to live, teach, and create in the UAE, encouraging local artists to exhibit their work, and presenting a variety of complementary cultural activities such as art classes, poetry evenings, and music events.

Etihad Modern Art Gallery’s ongoing success in 2016 resulted in the addition of a well-known European curator. Every month, EMAG hosts a new exhibition with a VIP opening, and we’ve strengthened our ties with prestigious galleries and institutions around Europe.
EMAG was the first privately-funded gallery from the UAE to hold a large-scale show in Berlin, Europe’s art capital, in December 2016. With several outstanding reviews in German and worldwide media, including Harper’s Bazaar magazine, the ‘Art Nomads: Made in Abu Dhabi’ show marked the entrance of Emirati artists in the international art scene.

Etihad Modern Art Gallery will continue to promote outstanding Emirati and UAE-based international artists with a presence at prestigious art fairs across the world in 2017.
The 2017 exhibition season will feature an even more broad and distinguished presentation of new and interesting artists from across the world, as well as continuous worldwide exposure for UAE culture. EMAG’s mission is to promote Emirati traditions, culture, and art to a larger worldwide audience while also advancing the art scene in Abu Dhabi.
We want to engage the public in a discussion and promote new cultural concepts while also supporting our founder, H.E. Khaled Siddiq Al Mutawaa’s, ecologically aware vision.
