Dubai is building its first institutional art collection. But instead of buying art, the works will be loaned by collectors. While Dubai is home to nonprofit Jameel Arts Center, as well as commercial galleries, such as those in art hub Alserkal Avenue, the city lacks institutional collections — @janetrady comments how the model is filling a gap and likely a response to its neighbours promoting art from a government level. #Dubaiart #artgalleries
