NIKA Project Space is a UAE-based gallery that fosters the artistic inquiry of emerging and established artists and curators internationally, with a focus on practitioners from the Global South.

Founded in 2023 by Veronika Berezina, the gallery serves as a platform for artistic discourse and experimentation and champions the work of female artists and curators. In addition to exhibitions which focus on conceptualization, abstraction, and philosophical inquiry, NIKA Project Space offers a critically engaged programme that emphasizes contemporaneity and dialogue through talks, performances, and educational initiatives. The gallery also hosts a research programme, inviting artists to create impactful new works that implement research-based and experimental creative processes, ultimately facilitating the exploration and portrayal of nuanced societal experiences and historical narratives.

Located in Al Khayat Avenue in Dubai’s industrial district Al Quoz, the250-square-metre NIKA project space is designed by award-wining international practice T.ZED Architects to serve as a catalyst for artistic, cultural, and philosophical inquiry.
