Art Lovers Rejoice! KSA to Get Two Art Biennales for 2024 and 2025!

If you're an art enthusiast, then you'll be ecstatic to know that two art biennales have been scheduled for 2024-2025 in Saudi Arabia

Riyadh will host a new and aesthetic edition of the Diriyah Contemporary Art Biennale from Feb. 20, 2024. 

On the other hand, Jeddah will host an exciting second edition of the Islamic Arts Biennale in 2025. 

However, the exact schedules for both biennales have yet to be revealed. 

Both these art biennales are part of the Diriyah Biennale Foundation, which was founded by the Kingdom's Ministry of Culture in 2020.

The first edition of the Diriyah Contemporary Art Biennale was the first contemporary art biennale to be hosted in Saudi Arabia from December 2021 to March 2022.

The biennale showcased various works of regional and international artists. 

The first edition of the Islamic Arts Biennale took place more recently from January to April 2023 and showcased Islamic culture of both the past and present at the iconic Hajj terminal.

If art is your passion, then be on the lookout for these two art biennales that promise some exciting developments in the Kingdom's art landscape.
