We are delighted to invite you to a very special and unique day-trip to the Sharjah Biennial 14 – join us for an inspiring day filled with contemporary art!
SHARJAH ART TOUR 2019 – Saturday, March 09th
The Austrian Business Council, together with Swiss Art Gate UAE and the Swiss Business Council Abu Dhabi, is for the third time organizing an exclusive day-trip from Abu Dhabi to the Sharjah Biennial, allowing our members insights into the fascinating Art scene happening within the United Arab Emirates. This tour will cover the majority of the Sharjah Biennial 14 works and installations.
Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber : Open from 7 March – 10 June 2019, Sharjah Biennial 14 (SB14) will showcase three unique exhibitions, curated by Zoe Butt, Omar Kholeif and Claire Tancons, that explore the possibilities and purpose of producing art when news is fed by a monopoly of sources, history is increasingly fictionalised, when ideas of “society’ are invariably displaced and when borders and beliefs are dictated by cultural, social and political systems.” For more information on the program please click here.
