Antidote is an online platform, based in Dubai, UAE, that serves the careers of talented, emerging and mid-career visual artists and designers. Profiting from the dual approach and direct relationship with artists and designers, Antidote creates spaces and exhibitions, highlighting exceptional artists from its roster in various locations throughout the UAE and abroad.
Founders Laure Parise from France and Najeh Zimmermann from Pakistan have lived and worked in cities around the globe in the fields of art, design and fashion.
This diversity of experience is reflected in their perception and sensibility of art and design. They believe in a singular approach to art and design as the borders between these two creative worlds has today become permeable.
In 2015, Laure and Najeh decided to merge their talents and portfolios and launch Antidote.
