JEDDAH: Edge of Arabia successfully launched the most significant show of Saudi contemporary art ever held in the Kingdom with support from Abdul Latif Jameel Community Initiatives and Abraaj Capital last week.
The homecoming exhibition “We Need to Talk” will continue in Jeddah until Feb. 18, after which it will travel independently to various cities.
The exhibition, curated by Mohammed Hafiz and co-curated by Edge of Arabia founder Stephen Stapleton, is set in a stunning 1,000 sq. meter space in the Al-Furusia Marina, a magnificent new development along the Jeddah Corniche Road overlooking the Red Sea.
The founding director of Edge of Arabia commented: “This is a very important milestone for Edge of Arabia, and we are proud to be able to showcase some of the most talented Saudi artists in their home country. The exhibition has been greeted with great curiosity and enthusiasm, and we’re confident to be moving in the right direction.”
