Session Description

Ongoing Sharjah Biennial 15 Mural Project
Family Workshop

Dates: Saturday, 27 May 2023
Timings: 5:00 pm–7:00 pm
Location: Collections Building, Arts Square, Sharjah
Languages: English and Arabic

Contribute your creative talents to the ongoing Sharjah Biennial 15 Mural Project, taking your imagination on a journey across past, present and future. Immerse yourself in the artworks, architecture and nature around you, and work collaboratively with other SB15 visitors to paint your impressions of Biennial works and venues on one of several large murals. Starting with only the outlines of a scene, you will be able to add forms and colours in your own style. At the end of the project, all the murals—backdrops of SB15 memories—will be on view at the Collections Building, Arts Square.

The Sharjah Biennial 15 Mural Project has been inspired by SB15 artist Pipo Nguyen-Duy’s (My) East of Eden (2011–2013), which reflects the artist’s complex emotions about his childhood in Vietnam.
