Ayyam has two locations: one in DIFC and one in AL Quoz. Young Collectors Auction is a unique concept and takes place at the Al Quoz location. You can buy original works of art, art prints of original works of art, art photography and sculptures. Before you head out to the auction, download their catalogue from the web site and check what you are interested in. Make sure it's not an art print of actual art - they have no value on the market. Also keep in mind that it is an auction and prices you bid on are not the final price you will pay. There will be a custom tax, which in Dubai is 5%, plus the auction will charge 20% service charge (Christies for example charges 25%). You will also be paying for shipping the purchased art to your home. Just a few small things to know. Nevertheless auctions are fun, thrilling and competitive. It's exciting to win the bid and tell the stories after. At the end of the day as long as you love what you've purchased it's all fare.

Ayyam Gallery is definitely one of the better art galleries in Dubai. It is not pretentious and most of the art work is somewhat reasonable. They range from 1,000USD to around 10,000USD so that is not bad for the the beging art collector. Also they really focus on young Arab artist which is pretty cool.

Last night I came to one of their Young Collection art auctions and it was packed. It was cool concept because they are focusing on selling art work to the young "go getter' so all the artwork was priced between 2,000USD and 10,000USD. I will say though some of the art work went much higher. Overall I did not buy anything but it was a fun evening just having some drinks and watching the auction.

One of the nicest galleries in Dubai in my opinion - showcasing, selling and auctioning works of contemporary Middle Eastern artists. There are two locations: AL Quoz and DIFC. Once in half a year or so gallery holds The Young Collectors Auction, which is usually open to public. Purchasing contemporary art in Dubai gets quite expensive.... If you are interested in region's art movement and just beginning to collect this is a good place to start - prices start from $2,000, sometimes less. There is an auction tomorroww night, the 22d. Catalogue of works can be picked directly at the gallery or viewed online from their website. If you wish to bid you must register for a paddle prior the auction.
