Mission and History

Our Mission

Founded in 2020 by Manar and Sharifah Alhinai, the Khaleeji Art Museum is the first digital museum that exhibits and promotes the work of artists and photographers from the Arab Gulf States (who are known as Khaleejis) and those who reside in the region, by hosting regular digital and virtual art exhibitions, and on the ground art events, that showcase their work.

We embrace and celebrate creativity, diverse forms of art, established as well as emerging artists. Through our museum, our mission is to introduce art  enthusiasts from around the world to the modern and contemporary art of our region, foster cross-cultural dialogues with them and build strong cultural bridges.

The Khaleeji Art Museum collaborates with other international art and public institutions  around the world to organise exhibitions that promote the works of artists from the region.

Our History

At the Khaleeji Art Museum, art and technology continually intersect. Our art experiences are free to enjoy stemming from our firm belief that art should be accessible to all.


The first digital museum dedicated to exhibiting and promoting the works of artists based in the Arab Gulf States is born.


We partnered with Dubai Festival City to execute multiple art exhibitions that were showcased on the world's largest permanent outdoor projection.


We launched Museum In the Sky, an innovative art experience that introduces flyers to artists based in the Arab Gulf States, who walk them through their galleries in the sky. Flyers can now enjoy the experience on Emirates and Etihad, and will soon be able to on other leading airlines.

More than 20 shows and exhibitions organised
More than 65 regional artists exhibited
