Dovecot Studio Making Art in Saudi Arabia – In Conversation with Abdulnasser Gharem
For his first visit to Scotland, artist Abdulnasser Gharem will discuss the landscape of contemporary art in Saudi Arabia. As Gharem bears witness to the evolution of art education, history, galleries and the art market in a notoriously conservative culture, the artist will share what it means to be part of a new school of Saudi artists who are finding an international audience, and changing perceptions of contemporary art in the Middle East.
The event is free with the In Conversation beginning at 18:00.
This talk is part of the British Council’s Culture and Sport programme in the Gulf, supported by the UK Government’s Integrated Activity Fund.
