The subtext of the larger Sharjah Biennial 13 program is as much about the present and future of art institutions as it is about the art itself.
The experience of Sharjah Biennial 13 (SB13) is, so far, akin to stepping into an ongoing conversation. Even if you have some idea about the topics, there’s a lot that’s been discussed already and you are just catching up.
"Tamawuj," the title of Christine Tohmé’s Sharjah Biennial 13, has three meanings in Arabic: "a rising and falling in waves"; "a flowing, swelling, surging or fluctuation"; and "a wavy, undulating appearance, outline or form."
Artists İnci Eviner, Uriel Orlow, Dineo Seshee Bopape, Walid Siti and the late Ali Jabri were awarded for their outstanding contributions to Sharjah Biennial 13: Tamawuj.
