Updates from the Sharjah Art Foundation: Curators of the 2019 Biennale and March Meeting 2018
The Sharjah Art Foundation appointed the curators of the 14th Sharjah Biennale, opening in March 2019: Zoe Butt, Omar Kholeif and Claire Tancons. Including 3 exhibitions curated and organised by each of the three curators, the Sharjah Biennial number 14 entitled “Leaving the Echo Chamber” will explore the possibilities for creating art when material culture is under constant threat of human destruction and climate degradation, offering artists from the UAE and around the world an internationally recognised platform for exhibition and experimentation.
The 2018 edition of the March Meeting (March 17 – 19, 2018) will tackle the issue of resistance and the act of organising as a condition for both artistic and cultural production. Through panels, exhibitions and performances the meeting will explore and encourage a reassessment of art’s relationship to notions of authorship, agency and the public.
