About The Mine

The Mine is a contemporary art space based in Dubai that focuses on presenting emerging artists of great promise in an unconventional setting. The Mine aims to excavate and discover new talent to be presented locally and to stimulate its audience through its original happenings; pushing for artistic dialogue whether it be performance art, installations, works on canvas or street art. Founded in November 2013 by Sanaz Askari, The Mine, both with the artists it presents and the off-beat environment it provides, challenges the conventions of presenting art with each exhibition. To further its commitment to emerging artists, The Mine also collaborates with non-profit organisations and has been actively involved in organizing and hosting cultural events aiming to promote young talent in all shapes and forms.
