Itís been a long hot summer and tonight, as all the galleries on Alserkal Avenue fling their doors open for their season openers, it is officially over.

†Over the course of a week there are almost 20 exhibition openings across Dubai and Abu Dhabi and half of them are in Alserkal Avenue. From the much lauded Rawiya: She Who Tells a Story at Gulf Photo Plus to the all Emirati group show at FN Designs and the German photographer Christian Voightís solo show at Salsali Private Museum (SPM) there is a large contingent of photography in the galleries this week. But thatís not forgetting a healthy portion of contemporary and conceptual art including the first show in the Middle East from the Korean artist Jung Lee at Green Art Gallery and Palestinian multi-media artist Larissa Sansour.

Make sure to keep checking our blog later today for interviews with them.
