About Sharjah Biennial 13
Sharjah Biennial 13: Tamawuj was on view at SAF through 10 June 2017. Curated by Christine Tohme, Tamawuj includes off-site projects organised by four interlocutors, who will each engage with the biennial’s key words. In addition to the Istanbul programme related to crops (13 May) led by curator Zeynep Öz, Kader Attia has launched the first off-site project around water in Dakar; curator Lara Khaldi addresses the subject of earth in Ramallah (10 August) and Ashkal Alwan organises a project around the culinary in Beirut (October). Act II of Tamawuj will also open in Beirut in October 2017. These projects compliment SB13 School, a yearlong education programme in Sharjah already underway, and the online publishing platform tamawuj.org.
