Zawyeh is an independent Visual Art Gallery founded in Ramallah, Palestine, in 2013. Since Feb 2020, the gallery has expanded by opening in a second location at Alserkal Avenue in Dubai, UAE. The gallery’s mission is to promote emerging and established Palestinian artists (from Palestine and the Diaspora) through various thematic exhibitions at home and abroad. The gallery seeks to advance excellent contemporary and modern Palestinian art internationally through participation in art fairs, exhibitions and bespoke art projects. The gallery specializes in supporting young artists to grow their art and portfolios. Since its establishment, the gallery has held a number of solo and collective exhibitions showcasing a variety of media including painting, sculpture, installations, video works and photography. Zawyeh believes that, in Palestine, resilience in the face of adversity engenders creativity and artistic excellence.
