Sharjah Art Foundation announces its 2018 spring programme featuring five career-spanning surveys of Mona Saudi (6 March–6 June 2018) as well as Latif Al Ani, Anna Boghiguian, Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim and Zineb Sedira (16 March–16 June 2018). Major spring initiatives also include March Meeting 2018 (17–19 March 2018), an annual convening of international and local thought-leaders and arts practitioners who explore topical issues in contemporary art through a programme of talks and performances open to all; as well as a new curator-in-residence programme organised in collaboration with Air Arabia, which will result in a group exhibition of artists and cultural producers from 24 February–26 May 2018. The robust spring programming continues the foundation’s commitment to providing an international platform for the exchange of ideas.
“Sharjah Art Foundation’s spring exhibitions spotlight five artists from across our region who have made pioneering contributions to contemporary art and whose practices address a broad range of timely concerns,” said Hoor Al Qasimi, President and Director of Sharjah Art Foundation. “Through these solo presentations, we aim to provide new insights on their practices and on the issues that have influenced contemporary art practitioners for decades. With the March Meeting presented concurrently this spring, as well as the launch of our curatorial residency in collaboration with Air Arabia, we look forward to welcoming local and international visitors, artists and cultural producers alike to reflect on the transformational role of art and its influence on today’s most pressing issues.”
The March Meeting and all exhibitions are free and open to the public.
