Situated within a private residence, Riffa Gallery houses the Private Collection of H.E. Shaikh Rashid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, Artist, Collector and foremost Art Patron in Bahrain.
Upon arriving to the property, visitors are met with a grandiose vision of the Men’s Majlis before opening a traditional wooden Bahraini door and entering the main residence. A stunning, Mashrabiya inspired structure is the focal point of the serenity of the central courtyard.
On a tour, each visitor is taken on a journey through rooms that elicit different sentiments. From the dynamism of the Main Gallery through to the intimacy of the upstairs sitting area, to the muted solitude of the Library, into the orientalist opulence of the Master Bedroom, further towards the reflective nature of the lower gallery, ending with the humbling femininity of the Ladies Majlis; each corridor, viewpoint and room is a spectacle in itself, exhibiting a carefully curated collection that compliments the essence of the space itself.
Yasmin currently holds the position of Curator and Collections Manager for Riffa Gallery overseeing the private collection.
