East Wing was founded in Doha, Qatar in 2012. With an exhibition space in Dubai that opened in 2014, with the aim of developing an international platform for photography to open up new dialogues in photography, with a keen eye on innovated artistic practice.
We are based in the Middle East, yet we curate and commission contemporary photographic projects from all around the globe, developing exhibitions; presenting at international art fairs, fostering educational events, authoring publications and regularly partnering with like-minded institutions.
We present the brightest emerging and established artists. Our projects trigger curiosity and enlighten while reflecting on and challenging existing viewpoints. East Wing also provides important supports in the development of meaningful collections for those with a passion for photography, video and unique publications.
Presently East Wing is in the process of moving to d3 Dubai Design District - hope to see you there in 2017!
