A new spotlight on Saudi Arabia's growing art scene
Held under the patronage of HRH Princess Jawaher bint Majed Al-Saud, Chairwoman of the Saudi Art Council and founder of Al-Mansouria Foundation, '21,39' will soon present audiences in Saudi Arabia and beyond with the opportunity to further explore and familiarise themselves with the culture of the city and wider Kingdom, along with showcasing a sense of growth and establishment on an international level.
The non-profit initiative planned by the Saudi Art Council, '21,39' Jeddah Arts is an annual programme which started in February and presents an exclusive insight into the talent and cultural landscape of the country.
Guests and visitors will experience a myriad of cultural events, including exploring home-grown galleries, exhibitions, and fine art institutions which continue to enhance the global art community – as well as a tour of Al Balad, the historic part of Jeddah.
"Following a successful launch early in 2014, '21,39' Jeddah Arts is dedicated to preserving and presenting the growing art scene in Saudi Arabia. The second edition starting in January will showcase a curated programme of culture, talks, and exhibitions which we aim to share with the global audience, creating an accessible experience for cultural influencers, enthusiasts, media, and the art world – highlighting the realities and talent of art throughout The Kingdom," said Zeinab Abu Alsamh, Director of The Saudi Art Council.
