Lahd Gallery is a contemporary Middle Eastern art gallery. Founded in 2005 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to create a focal point for women artists from the Persian Gulf,[1][2][3] Lahd Gallery soon became a well known exhibition space representing exclusively MENASA ( Middle East, North Africa, South Asia) contemporary art throughout the last decade. Artists are exposed to an international market using an online e-gallery, as well as yearly international pop venues, fairs and events all over the world.[4][5]

In 2010, Lahd Gallery moved to its present location in London and has since become the foremost gallery promoting contemporary Middle Eastern art.[6][7][8][9]
