Complementing March Meeting 2021 (MM 2021) is a series of commissioned essays written by scholars, academics, researchers and art practitioners who were selected through an open call for abstracts on the history and influence of Sharjah Biennial. Expanding on Okwui Enwezor’s curatorial concept of the Biennial as a platform to engage with history, politics and society, these essays reflect on the relationship between art production and audience engagement.

MM 2021 will include presentations by contributing writers Grace Aneiza Ali, Melissa Carlson, Chiara Cartuccia, Samina Iqbal, Sarah Johnson, Sadia Kamran, Wided Khadraoui, Sabrina Moura, Silke Schmickl, Sadia Shirazi and Murtaza Vali.

A complete and detailed March Meeting 2021 programme is available here.

The online talks, panels, presentations and lectures can be accessed on the March Meeting 2021 virtual platform here. Registration is required for online sessions ahead of their scheduled start time.
