Arternative has a legacy spanning 17 years playing a pivotal role nurturing the artistic talent from Palestine, Syria, Iran, Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and beyond. Having built modern masters such as Alfred Basbous and Hussein Madi who are regularly included in Christie’s and Sotheby’s auctions we now turn our gaze towards the artists of the now who produce compelling works within the contemporary framework. With our finger on the pulse of the artists of the moment we’ve actively been exploring their intersections. You may also know us as the former Middle Eastern distributors of Assouline and Taschen, for example, ventures which we felt greatly complemented our gallery and missions. This leads me to our latest venture which will run in parallel to Tabari Artspace - Arternative Space.
