Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery opens in Dubai

Art gallery’s first international location outside Luxembourg


Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery has announced the opening of its first location in the Middle East in Dubai, reinforcing its international positioning in the art world.

The contemporary art gallery offers special historical projects and is known for introducing some of the most influential Afro-American artists to Luxembourg. It has introduced artists such as Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Wangechi Mutu, Jeff Sonhouse, and Terry Adkins, at a time when they were still relatively unknown.

The new Dubai location will allow an expanded exhibition program and additional international representation of Afro-American and African emerging artists. The gallery also plans to use its name and reputation to promote UAE artists abroad.

To celebrate the opening of the Dubai gallery, Zidoun-Bossuyt showcased works by artists from different generations and cultures, including Noel W. Anderson, Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil, Louis Granet, Yashua Klos, John Madu, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Jeff Sonhouse, and Summer Wheat.

Established in 2013, Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery organizes six exhibitions a year. In May 2016, it held a historical Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition featuring 20 rarely seen pieces on loan from private collectors. In September 2017, the gallery opened the first historical show of Jean Dubuffet in Luxembourg featuring more than 50 works of the artist.

In 2022, the gallery participated for the sixth time in Art Dubai, an international art fair that takes place every March.

The Dubai gallery is Zidoun-Bossuyt’s first standalone gallery outside Luxembourg. It has opened in the beachside neighborhood of Jumeirah, home to several art galleries and the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel. Zidoun-Bossuyt plans to open a second international location in Paris in September 2022.
