Edge of Arabia

Edge of Arabia, Saudi Artist Exhibition
5 Jun – 2 Aug, 2009
Palazzo Polignac, Venice

For the first time Saudi Artists present their work during the 53th International Art Exhibition. In 2009 a new generation of Saudi Artists shed light on the largely unknown contemporary art culture of Saudi Arabia. “Edge Of Arabia” in Venice features the work of 10 Saudi contemporary artists, male and female. Their work explores the complex and diverse reality of 21st century life in Saudi Arabia, combining installation, performance and a variety of other media with a multi-disciplinary approach to artistic practice – one artist is a GP, another an army Major. In its outlook and range the work is as much personal or domestic as it is geopolitical.
