The Gallery itself is unique in the Saudi art community as an infinitely reconfigurable space able to host international exhibitions, local shows, and art symposiums alike.
While the Gallery is still young, it has been host to a number of local and international exhibitions, including non-profit exhibitions promoting art and culture such as “25 years of Arab Creativity” from Paris’ Institute du Monde Arabe, and “Out of Arabia: Landscape throughout the Arabian Peninsula” in collaboration with the British Council.
Solo exhibitions at the gallery have included “Zaza 2013” by Muhammad Zaza; “Splendors of Calligraphy & Illuminations from the Islamic Arts” by Abdulrahman Al Soliman; Imad Taher’s solo exhibition, “Muse”; France-based Syrian artist Ahmad Moualla’s solo exhibition, “Ripples: Deriving Secrets.”
In 2014, The Gallery has exhibited Dutch-artist Caroline Havers’s collection, “Sands and Serendipity,” which explored the artist’s new Saudi setting; a collection of work by Egyptian abstract artist Farouk Hosny; as well as “Circles of Memory”, Syrian-artist Toufic Hamidi’s first solo exhibition.
Beyond exhibitions and international collaborations, Naila Art Gallery represents a number of emerging and established local and international artists, including Muhammad Zaza, Toufic Al-Hamidi, Fahad Al-Niemah, Abdullah Al Marzook, Ghada Al-Hassan, and Ayman Zedani.
Naila Art Gallery also has an established education program in place, which includes art symposiums, workshops and seminars for both artists and the public. Naila Art Gallery is also committed to helping foster artistic talent with an established fund. Future collaborations in the upcoming year include both international and local creative partners.
All of Naila Art Gallery’s activities and programs work towards a single mission celebrating contemporary art.
