Diwaniya Art Gallery is a self-founded Gallery that first opened its doors to the public in February 2020 and is located in Algiers, the capital city of Algeria. Having the advantage of being located in North Africa along with its access to the Mediterranean Sea reinforced its openness to the continents: Africa, Europe and Asia.
The gallery’s aim is to showcase Contemporary Arab and Islamic art to a wide scale of audience by providing an innovative program to both established and emerging artists on local, regional and international levels. It operates as a springboard for young artists to launch their career and is a platform that offers opportunities to showcase, network as well as exchange artwork and talks on Oriental and Islamic Art from across the MENA region to the rest of the world.
The gallery vision is To grow a creative community in an off boarder shared space full of art craft,
inspirational debates and organized talks. As the historical role of a Diwaniya used to
be the hub of diverse interaction, the gallery stands for contributing in promoting the
vibrant Arabic and Islamic Art to the west. A rich historical and cultural patrimonial
will be the icebreaker of stereotypes between the East and the West, Diwaniya is a
conversion player, with the aim to be the primary promotor of Arabic and Islamic Art to the
rest of the globe.
Our mission is To build a multinational home for the sake of representing one identity (Arab Islamic Art)
because our differences make us stronger. Works are promoted to the general public in order to expand the culture of art gallery visits in the region as well as to introduce it to the commercial art world.
